Sorry about this, but I couldn’t resist. It’s just some mid-week silliness.
“Watering the flowers,” c. 1914, by Harry Whittier Frees, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division (both photos).
Oh, go ahead and click that button.
Frees, an American photographer, began taking posed pictures of animals in 1906. They soon became popular on novelty postcards and calendars and in advertisements, magazines, and children’s books. (More here.)

A certain level of silliness is a good thing. The photos made me smile.
LOL 🙂 You’ve inspired me to go home and dress up the doggies!! I’ve got the perfect little child’s watering can as a prop.
HA HA HA!! I will have to teach my Maltese to 1) wear a dress and 2) water the flowers. If I could teach her to weed I’d be all set.
Hi all, I read that the photographer’s mother made all the little outfits.
