Dogs being raised by Joseph and Genevieve (Nagle) Brandstatter, 1930s

Dublin Core

Description

The back yard of the house belonging to J.A. and Genevieve (Nagle) Brandstatter. A shed can be seen attached to several fenced off enclosures. These enclosures hold a number of small dogs.

During the Great Depression, the Brandstatters raised Boston terriers as a source of income. A Boston terrier was a popular choice for a family dog, and the Brandstatters sold these dogs to many families in the Iowa City and Coralville area. Among their buyers was Irving Weber. They kept this business for almost ten years, stopping after World War II began (Brandstatter).
