Presa Canario 100 years ago

Another photograph by Tomas Gomez Bosh (1883-1980) artist from gran Canaria made in the first years of XX century. This picture is in collection of “FEDAC” provided from collection of Nestor Gomez Arroyo.

Photography shows man with a dog and was made around years 1910-1920 in Gran Canaria. Note how much this dog resembles dogs of times of 80’s, times of official recognition of our breed. See proportions, size and expression. Shape of the eyes, length of the muzzle. Notice the beautiful typical collar he is wearing, a work of art,, made of strong leather and locked with padlock.
