Apparently there’s been a market for well-dressed dogs long before Menswear Dog.
These vintage, #nofilter photos dating back as far as 1900 show we’ve always a strange affinity for taking photos of dogs wearing human clothes and doing people things. No-one really knows why and no-one really questions it, but it probably has something to do with the fact that dogs are dogs, and dogs are amazing.
Scroll through the gallery above to see a bunch of century-old dogs wearing glasses, playing piano, wearing glasses while playing the piano, amongst many other wacky things dogs don’t normally do. Results range from adorable, strange, to kind of creepy (looking at you, number 12.)
There’s something really great knowing that this is what people started doing when cameras first became a thing, and we haven’t changed our priorities since. Bless.
