CURATED COLLECTION – Chows and Antique Cars

CHOWTALES NEW LOGO DONEI’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!!



If anyone can ID what this 3 wheeled vehicle is called I would love to hear from you in the comments. It looks motorized

CIRCA 1938 MAN AND WOMAN WITH THEIR CHOW IN A SPORTS CAR

Circa 1920’s – USA
Well for me at least…this is the very first time I have seen a shaved chow from this era in private photos. Chows had very little length of coat in those days so the reason for shaving must have been to keep cool vs. a matting problem.
 
I was so glad to acquire both photos as a set , as the handwriting on the one with the cropped chow, tells the story for both. A double bonus for my collection of automobiles with chows…..An awesome Studebaker!!!
