Califonia Bountiful

A Pony in the Picture

Nov./Dec. 2007 California Country magazine

A Pony in the Picture, by California historian and horse lover Victoria Randall, pulls together an endearing collection of vintage photos. The gift-size book chronicles photos from the late 1800s that include ponies as props in children’s portraits. These charming images were often the work of traveling photographers who led a pony with a fancy saddle through America’s neighborhoods. $14.95 in hardcover. Order from Ten Speed Press at
