"Achilles" A Wolf Which Has Gone Bad [Postcard]


I believe this picture depicts the first Achilles; Dr. McCleery was fond of the name, and also had wolves named Achilles Jr., Achilles III, and Achilles IV. Several early postcards exist depicting Dr. McCleery's original wolves, and I believe this is one of them. Dr. McCleery obtained Achilles in 1921, and Achilles had died by 1926. I am making a guess that this photograph was taken by A. A. Nicolas based on the style.

The first file is a postcard version of this image. The second file is a photograph version of this image with slightly different eyes.



Between 1921 and 1926
