More Bedlington History

On the subject of old Beddie pics, here is one of the late great Rev Hector Jack Brothelbank, with one of his Bedlingtons.Circa 1930.
I just love these old photos, if we can collect a few I will put them all in a special folder in the index column. Many thanks to David Bruce for the Rev Hector Jack Brothelbank, ( what a great name!) David do write in the comments if you have any information about the Reverend and his bedlington

I've heard of this name Rev Jack Brothelbank before but it's the first time I've actually seen any pictures of him.

Always thought someone was taking the waters, Holy ones of course.

Great photo, keep the old ones coming folks, they're really interesting!

David Bruce said...

Have faith Del, (pun intended).
Sadly Hector left us last year, he was a bit anti showing to tell the truth, but a true Bedlington lover none the less.
He is pictured with his cracking little bitch Fanny.

Hi David

We can both take a joke. Nice to see the dogs in both our pictures are very similar, guess they would do well at the Working Shows but not at Crufts.

Me to Mo, the old fella had a sense of humour.

no good for showing these days Dirk,
they'd be considered to plain, no furnishings, too dark.
Too Bedlington like in fact.
Funny old world...
