I wanted to share this family photo of 52 Photos Week 24 Pets with the community. Location: Maryland or (West) Virginia. Date: 1837. This is by far our oldest family pet "picture." Joseph E Robinson had this painted in 1837 when he was a bridge engineer for the B&O in Maryland. In later life he was a farmer, but in 1837 at age 23 he looks like quite the dandy. BTW this is HUGE: it is 7 feet tall, by 5 feet in width - you can see that it was cut in half at one point. The only place it fits in our home is in a large stairway...
