The Dogs of the First World War exhibition explores the role of dogs as both companions and workers during the years 1914-18.
The exhibition is inspired by the Libby Hall Collection held in the archive at Bishopsgate Institute. The collection is a treasure trove of canine-related photographs and postcards, essential viewing for dog-lovers and social historians alike.
