Carnival of Genealogy - 78th Edition - Pony Picture! South Vancouver BC Canada

George William and David Joseph ROGERS, c. 1924,
South Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Private collection.

The theme for the 78th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is - Pony Pictures! This will be posted soon at Creative Gene. Don't miss it.

This 'pony picture' is of my dad, George Rogers, and his younger brother, David. David looks a bit doubtful, and the pony isn't interested at all, but Dad looks a bit excited. I believe this photograph was taken near the front of their house on Chester Street, then in South Vancouver. You can see part of a house, and a sidewalk which seems to end right there. The pony is standing on rough, maybe wet, ground.

The photograph is in a nice brown folder, but has no identification on it except for a shield design on the front - shown below. I think the pony must have belonged to a travelling photographer. I'd be very interested to hear if anyone else from Vancouver or South Vancouver has similar photographs.

Front of the 'pony photograph' folder. Brown, no photographer's identification.
11 by 8 cm. Private collection.

Aren't they cute! Two pony boys. I'm afraid I had to cheat....I couldn't fine one pix of anyone on a real horse!

I love the photo! I bet the pony just wanted the photographer to hurry up so he could go home. Thanks for sharing!
