DEPTFORD - LONDON - BRITTANY - RANDOM BITS OF HISTORY
A talbot, perhaps? William the Bastard brought them over with him, and Normandy and Brittany were linked by marriage later.
I think you're right - this talbot picture looks quite similar, especially around the ears. Thank you!
It's not at all the 'heraldique' of the town either, so I wonder what it represents...
I think they are greyhounds wearing rather fetching caps. Not flat ones though, that would make them whippets!
Like the greyhounds in caps idea! Given the lack of obvious connection between the town and the 'heraldry', perhaps this came off-the-peg from one of those nineteenth-century catalogues?
I almost agree with the Dame but I would describe them as berets.
Of course - what else would a French greyhound wear!
