I’m sure you can tell by the ChowTales logo I designed that my favorite Chow collectible is ephemera showing Chows with old cars. I have been working on restoring the ones in my private collection for years and now have enough of them to make a decent Curated Collection in the archive. Many of these photos were badly damaged and faded before restoration. I hope you enjoy these precious Chowdren and their automobiles!!
I honestly did not think this stunning photograph would end up being in my collection. The price tag was far above what I have ever paid for a single snapshot, but I understood that the subject matter gave this image the triple threat of collector values. A uniformed officer, antique cars, cars and more cars…and a chow. NOT JUST A CHOW.. but a SMOOTH chow. A rarity in it’s own right in the 1920s!
If anyone can ID what this 3 wheeled vehicle is called I would love to hear from you in the comments. It looks motorized
