"Among the vast selection of pet-related publications, Dog Show 1961-1978 is by far the best"

Among the vast selection of pet-related publications, Dog Show 1961-1978 is by far the best, featuring the black and white images of the documentary photographer Shirley Baker, taken at dog shows throughout the UK at a time when all women looked like poodles and all men looked like bloodhounds. Even the dogs look dated.
