This vintage real photo postcard features a handsome well dressed young boy sitting on a wall next to his white dog. The canine appears to be a Samoyed. The child is wearing a wonderful expression. He seems to have found his time at the photographers studio to be quite amusing. The boy is clearly not really near oceans edge. In fact, he is posing at the T. A. Manning studio in Long Beach, California. The AZO stamp box indicates that the postcard was produced between 1904 and 1918.
