Vintage Collie Images

Collies were so popular around the turn of the century, there are always lots of depictions of them in books and journals from the era. So I figured they should get their own post.

One thought on “Vintage Collie Images

  1. I can see my English Shepherd in the old images of the Collie before the head became chiseled to a long muzzle with the smaller eye in the modern Collie. Both have great temperments and work ethics with notable independent instincts.
