DOG BREEDS IN THE 1920s

These photos of the West Highland Terrier and the Aberdeen Terrier (consider the darker kind of the same type of terrier) are from The Wonder Book of Animals published in 1925. The West Highland Terrier looks much more like a working terrier than the modern "cutesy" version of the breed.

 

This collection of dog breeds is from an encyclopedia published in 1923. Some of the breeds look quite different from their modern counterparts. The traditional 1923 hair-style for the French poodle was corded, much like the modern Komondor and Puli breeds. The encyclopedia referred to the "plum pudding" Dalmatian as "almost extinct". "Boarhound" is the old name for a Great Dane.
