ROUGH COLLIE ARCHIVES BOUGHLEE COLLECTION
Mary Stevens ‘Boughlee’ has very kindly donated her considerable collection of Rough Collie Kennel Advertisements taken from Christmas Numbers, Supplements and Annuals over a period of more than sixty years.
The collection, which is extensive, not only provides pictorial evidence of many Collies that have previously been little more than names on a trophy, in a pedigree, or description by some chronicler, they also provide a detailed record of the changing trends in kennel advertisements during the first thee quarters of the twentieth century, as can be seen in the two examples here. In order to maintain the format of these pages, they are being copied to Adobe’s pdf format files, with a record of their original source included in the Alt description. The Images have already been scanned and will be stored separately, although the final quality may not be suitable for hard-copy publication.
