Camels in Patrick Street
(Photo courtesy of Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society)
I've always been fascinated by this photograph. It was taken in Patrick Street, Campbelltown around 1900 and shows 2 unidentified men watching over some cattle and 3 camels! I wonder what the camels were used for and whether this paddock in Patrick Street was their usual home? Maybe someone out there can shed some light on this. Note in the background Reeve's Emporium on the corner of Patrick and Queen Street (see my earlier post on Reeve's Emporium by clicking on http://campbelltown-library.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/reeves-emporium.html).
