CIRCA 1920S – When I purchased this photo I wasn’t quite sure if it was a chow next to this man. From the other photos in the album it was assumed he was a priest and possibly from South Dakota. The church in the background is stunning.
Once I enlarged and cropped the photo , I found that this was indeed a very nice looking chow (albeit grainy and a bit blurry) . It is always a bonus to find writing on or near a photo to help with identification. The chow’s name is “Chinco”.
