Bubbles signed, inscribed and dated 'V.S.Garland/Winchester.1883' (lower right) oil on canvas 14 3/16 x 12 in. (36 x 30.5 cm.) painted oval
Bubbles was bought by the Hon. A. Grenville from an Indian on the Margaree River, Cape Breton, in 1876. He was then 4 years old. He lived in the Mess of the 1/60th and Rifle Depot until 1887, when he was sent (owning to old age) to Warwick Castle, where he was buried under a Cedar tree among other old favourites.
