Random post about dogs
There is something in the Society’s collection for every interest. A leather bound alphabetical index book lists all dogs registered in Port Melbourne in 1892 by owner surname. Even in 1892 there were dogs large and small – from Newfoundlands to poodles. The names of the dogs are not recorded – that would have been revealing.
Port Melbourne plays Williamstown at North Port Oval this weekend. Dogs play a role in this old rivalry. As you can see, no dogs are allowed but that rule was apparently flouted by a President of the Williamstown Football Club.
Any dog tales out there?
