Hump Day!

We just couldn’t help celebrating Wednesday with a camel photo.

These camels were part of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus that came to Cheyenne in about 1933. The circus train was unloaded at the Union Pacific yards and the animals were walked 2 miles up Snyder Avenue to Frontier Park where the circus tent was set up. Local amateur historian Edna Fish took the photo from her front yard. On the back she wrote “Wouldn’t you like to ride the front one?”
