Enclosed find a photo taken of me in the winter of 1941 – nearly 78 years ago. I’m still around and so is the Art Museum. I grew up on Capitol Hill and my friends and I were often at the Museum, especially the Saturday movies. I’m happy to support the making the icon effort.

All the best,
Daisy Beach

When my sisters, brother and I were growing up we visited the art museum from time to time and always made a stop at the camels. Here are two photos. One of the four of us Saunders kids about 1958 and another of our mother Helen about 1928 with the real thing in China. The camels had just finished delivering a load of coal for home heating.

My dad and I in 1996. He grew up a few blocks from here and we were visiting his old neighborhood!
