This had to be the most popular pony in America back in the 40’s. I think this photographer must have gone from house to house with his precious pony and his camera, for it was a very popular theme. This is one of my favorite childhood photos from days gone by.
Children photographed on ponies was a very popular theme from 1880 until 1955 in America.

Cameras and photography captured my interest years ago as a child with my little Brownie. The cameras have changed over the years until the Digital age when I got really serious about photography. Not only has my work improved, but it has opened many doors to meeting wonderful people along the way. New friendships and learning new skills… I am hopeful that some of my best work is yet to come.

    A wonderful moment from your archives Marjie, so easy to appreciate why it has to be one of your all time favourite photos, just beautiful and a pleasure to see,
    Regards, Rod.

  • Thank you, Rod. It has been a favorite for many over the years. I used to work in an interior design store and when one of our managers saw this photo, she asked if she could use a copy of it in our floor displays. I felt so honored, and when I see this now, I know that it was a very special era and fondly remembered for the simpler times.

    I have a photograph of my husband when he was her age and it is almost exactly like this picture…even the cowboy hat and it looks like the same poney standing beside a house…My photo though is black and white….I’m wondering if that is you in the picture when you were small
  • This was me on that pony and I think it had to be the most photographed pony EVER! This photo was taken in Seattle.
