“The Blind Man’s Dog – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “A blind man, who sits at the corner of a street in Paris, one day went into a shop close by to warm himself; before he went, he tied to his chair his faithful dog, who held his tin can for the pennies of the passers-by; and patiently the good animal performed his task.”
