Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

* A sweetly evocative collection of 120 photographic portraits of children and ponies, spanning 1880 to 1990. * Chronicles the use of ponies as "props" in children's portraiture, and documents the development of photography and the popularity of keepsake photos over more than a century. * All the photographs were taken in the United States and Canada, with striking exceptions from Burma, Buenos Aires, and Great Britain. * A perfect gift for horse lovers and vintage photography collectors.

You've just GOT to love this book!

As evidenced by these truly, exceptional photographs, "A Pony in the Picture" has been assembled with a keen eye for nuance and an affectionate yet historical sensibility, I can't imagine a child or adult who wouldn't cherish this wonderful collection of rare, vintage pictures, featuring kids and ponies.

MY Christmas shopping is now, officially DONE! I'm buying a copy for every horse and animal lover I know and suggest you do the same.

Ms. Randall, take a bow.

Well-written with many quality photographs that give the reader a look into the past, and at a childhood tradition that is all but forgotten in modern times.

A wonderful book to look at for adults and children alike. Some adults can have a walk down memory lane when looking at the photos and some people will be given a history lesson of how important horses were in our lives for both pleasure and work.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very clever and compelling subject for a photography book. Taking a common experience many children have, that is sitting on or riding a pony, this collection of photographs of those moments is tremendous fun, and beautifully done.
