Dog Show: Bench Show 1890, New England Kennel Club

The vintage dog show image "Bench Show," was made as a promotional dog show poster for the New England Kennel Club Bench Show in Boston, Massachusetts, circa 1890. It portrays a variety of dog breeds, including the St. Bernard, Mastiff, American Bulldog, Bloodhound, Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie), King Charles Spaniel (taking shelter under the St. Bernard), and others. Note: A "Bench Show" is a dog show in which all of the competing dogs are displayed and available when not in the show ring, and they can be discussed by handlers, breeders, and attendees.
