Harlem Picture: St. Bavo Dogwhipper

James Martin
It's not so often that you see a guy like this commemorated in a church. He's the dog whipper, a very important fellow in Haarlem, evidently. His duty was to remove troublesome dogs from the church. There must have been plenty of troublesome religious dogs, because they're commemorated in statues around the church, like the one on the next page.
