I saw this photo and I had to share it.
This is a photo from June 21st, 1942. We were in the early days of World War II and in the middle of rationing. This poor pup was sitting with his owner waiting through long gas lines the day before strict rationing went into effect. I’m sure it was exceedingly uncomfortable and hot that summer in Washington.
