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.
On the right in this photo is my grandmother Eunice Coble Lamoreux, who did volunteer work with SAM. It is undated, but from her “New Look” suit and hat it obviously is from the post WWII era. I found the photo when I was cleaning out my parent’s house after my father died.
