Camel riding in Venice, California, 1906

Camel riding in Venice, California, 1906When Abbott Kinney conceived the “Venice of California” his vision came complete with canals, gondolas, amusement piers, hotels and Venetian-styled structures. I’m not sure how camel rides fit in, but those three people astride that camel seem to be enjoying themselves. But look at that line of magnificent buildings behind them. What a shame the Venice Beach of today no longer has them intact. You can still remnants of them here and there, but nothing like this. (circa 1906)
