Yorkshireman in Pub with his Whippet!


This is a timeless picture of a man from Yorkshire with his whippet in a pub. Change the newspaper for another year and it could have been taken 150 years ago!

This is a self portrait of Rob Hine with his whippet 8/2013. He graciously allowed me to share the photo on my blog.
