1910 – City Pound Puppy Postcard “I Don’t Want to Be An Angel”

This is another card from the Bertha (and Jim) Dicus  of Alanson, Michigan collection.

The message on this card reads:

“All Well … Hope you the same.  It is muddy here looks like more rain” and it is unsigned.  The postmark is partially unreadable and is marked 1910.

This card by V. Colby was part of a series and printed in 1909.

Its a real shame that 100 years later, the City Pound is still a fixture in our society.

  1. It really is a shame that there are still dogs uncared for, but the one on the card doesn’t look as though he’ll be there long. Lovely little thing. :)

  2. I love this postcard, because to me, it means that even 100 years ago, people were concerned about animal homelessness and euthansia.

    Makes me said that 100 years ago, people were concerned about animal homelessness and euthanasia.

    We are making strides, just not fast enough.
