The Library’s catalogue record for this photograph calls this dog a Scottish terrier. For many years the phrase ‘Scottish terrier’ related to any of several terrier breeds which originated in Scotland, including West HIghland, Skye, Cairn and Aberdeen terriers. This dog is probably a Skye or Cairn terrier.
