Here's a biker guy who loved his work. Not only did his trike get him places but it was also his shop on wheels. He was a dog tag maker.

This 8.5 by 6.5 black and white photo shows J.J. Stubbins of Glendale Arizona making dog tags at the 7th Annual National Retriever Championship Trial in Herrin Illinois. He seems to have a line up of folks who need tags or are just admiring the wheels.

This photo was taken by Evelyn Shafer who was a well-known photographer of dogs and dog shows including the ultimate Westminster Show. Serious dog fanciers relied on specialized dog magazines for information and show photos. Back in the black-and-white heyday of the 'sporting press', full-time dog show photographers like Evelyn Shafer covered thousands of miles a year to supply countless photos to the AKC Gazette and other journals of the sport.

Shafer was the rare female artist who left behind part of the dog show sport’s visual record. She took many a 'win shot', a formal portrait taken in the winner’s circle, as part of the AKC’s documentation of a show award.

Though there are no dogs present in this photo, Shafer was there to cover the Retriever Trials. She found something equally captivating as an adorable winning dog. She found adorable Stubbins on his bike....with the most winning smile.

The photo has the original newswire copy on the back. Some age-related crinkles at edges...nothing to distract from the image. The left top corner is blank...as was printed. This photo is original 1947.
