Title

Unidentified girl and a dog in a cozy room

Description

Black and white image of a young woman and a dog seated in front of a fireplace with a burning fire. The young woman is seated on a low stool, and she wears a knee-length short-sleeved dress, short socks, and laced up shoes. One hand rests upon the back of the dog, who lays on a braided rug at her side. A rifle is hung above the fire, and another leans in the corner created by the fireplace against the wall. A rocking chair and a floral stuffed chair sit on either side of the fireplace, and the mantle is decorated with pictures and a large clock with columns and a pendulum. One of the pictures on the mantle is of a man in a uniform that appears to be from World War II. Museum records do not identify the girl or the location of her home. This photo is part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life, people, and locations in Washington County and northwest Oregon. See WCMpic_014631 and WCMpic_014632 for other images of this house.
