Pete the Our Gang Dog, Steel Pier, Atlantic City, N.J.

Pete the Our Gang Dog, Steel Pier, Atlantic City, N.J.
"Central Studios. 369P. With 'Pete,' Our Gang Dog, Steel Pier, Atlantic City."

Our Gang was "a series of American comedy short films about a group of poor neighborhood children and their adventures" that first appeared in movie theaters as early as the 1920s. The films were later released on television beginning in the 1950s under the original Our Gang name or as The Little Rascals.

Pete the Pup, also known as Pete the Dog With the Ring Around His Eye, was a fixture in the comedies, and he (or his successor, whose ring was painted on) posed with children for souvenir photos like this one at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in the 1930s.

The boy in this photo, who doesn't seem to be enjoying his time with Pete, is the same kid who's playing with his toys in Sonny, Bunny, and Dummy and A Pedal Car for Christmas.

Thanks, Smiley! I found some other examples on Flickr (see my gallery of Souvenir Photos of Pete the Our Gang Dog if you care to venture over there).
