The Animals and People of 1917 Scotland

The November-December 1917 issue of The National Geographic Magazine is full of grim coverage of the war. In its midst, this gorgeous untitled photo essay appears depicting the domesticated animals of Scotland, many including people. These photos, all by William Reid, are my favorites from the piece:

“Sporting dogs of Aberfoyle, Perthshire”
The little terrier with his eyes on the ground steals the show.
Although the caption mentions only one dog, there are two in the photo, providing some nice symmetry.
A captivating shot of Scottish deerhounds “on the hills in the vicinity of Edinburgh”
Ouch. Chomped Scottie pup ears.
