Tacoma Silver Fox Farm owner George H. Jensen and daughter Barbara Ellen perch on the running board of his new Oldsmobile Six sedan in late September of 1926. They are holding prize brush and white-tip foxes from the same litter. The man in the sedan with another fox was not identified. Mr. Jensen, who had recently accepted delivery of the car from Winthrop Motors, was planning a 3000-mile trip in it to inspect foxes for registration for the American National Fox Breeders Association. He was expected back by November 1st to get his own foxes ready for the national fox show in Portland. (Tacoma Sunday Ledger, 10-3-26, 10-G-alt. photograph)

George H. Jensen, owner of the Tacoma Silver Fox Farm, was photographed in September of 1926 holding a fox. The fox breeding farm, located south of Tacoma, was one of the leaders in the nation in the propagation of fur foxes. In January of 1927, they shipped out 82 foxes to a new farm, Sunflower Fox Farm in Topeka, Ks. This was the largest order for foxes ever undertaken in the west and one of the largest ever placed in the history of fox breeding. The foxes netted $39,500, with prices ranging as high as $1,000 for a single fox. TPL 7081 (TNT 1/101927, pg. 9)
