  1. This is part of a number of portraits done at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. There was a whole industry of producing books of photographs taken there. The shelves in the U of Illinois Library stacks are a treasure. I lived in them, almost literally, for days while Charles and I were working on “Horses of the White City.” This one was published in a very large folio book called Portrait Types of the Midway, bound group of collections of photographic portraits, F. W. Putnam & Co., c. 1893.

  2. Pure and proud like a Bedouin mare!

  3. Belle et fière avec du caractère.

  4. Syrian bred stallion for sale, apparently the Lizonne stud ran into some troubles, they’re selling out by next month http://www.lizonne.com

  5. A great photo to be able to appreciate the times!

  6. Yes, Sophie is keeping the Syrian mare but selling the Syrian stallion (Mokhtar x Hijab), excellent pedigree and very pure.
