I can’t believe my eyes…wedged in an old dog book I have had packed away from the 1930’s still wrapped in paper and tape…. was this photo. The Far East Kennels
up close and personal!!! The caption reads “1929 Far East Kennels. Mr and Mrs. J.T. Hartwell at Mr. Zifferer’s Famous Far East Kennels at Columbia, PA., during their recent visit to America. Inside the railing is Mrs. Farrington.”
NOTE: More research shows Mr. and Mrs.Farrington were the kennel managers at Far East Kennels…Kang Shi is the Hartwell’s famous kennel in England)
It was faded and torn so I did some restoration work on this beauty

CIRCA 1925 – In my continuing research on the beautiful Chinese themed “Far East” Kennels, I discovered this rare photo of Mrs Zifferer. She is returning from Europe with a new addition to the kennel. There are many ads in the period newspapers for their “rare” white chows.
