General Patton was a devoted dog lover. He bought the famous Willie in 1944 and wrote about him: “…my bull pup . . . took to me like a duck to water. He is 15 months old, pure white except for a little lemin on his tail which to a cursory glance would seem to indicate that he had not used toilet paper. . .”. The general wrote in his diary on July 15th, 1944: “Willie is crazy about me and almost has a fit when I come back to camp. He snores too and is company at night”.
With a face that tells thousands of stories. This unknown woman was photographed in the Philippines by a Dutch photographer Francisco Van Camp in 1875. The photograph's inscription describes her as an ethnic Chinese mestizo. Fresh haired and all her flowing wildly, this black and white portrait is worlds away from the Victorian photography we normally see. What a beauty!
