Camel Seat

I must have walked past these seats a dozen times and didn't see the camels until the other day. I am only guessing but that guess is that the significance of the camels relates to the imperial camel corps who served in Egypt during WW1. Can anyone confirm that?

I love that you wouldn't necessarily see the camels unless you were looking for them. Very clever.

How unusual! I think your assumption is a good one.

Hi Mo,

How odd, but so beautiful.
To me it sounds as if your guess is right. It sounds reasonable.

Best regards
Asta

I probably wouldn't have noticed the camels at first either! And, yes, too bad that I will miss you in Venice! I will be there until the 28th. I thought Pink was going to meet me there at some point, but I haven't heard from her. I will be meeting another friend from London at some point during my stay, so should be fun!

What a wonderful idea for a bench! Weird too, 'cause I don't remember seeing too many camels walking around London :-D... but you must be right, it has to be connected with Brits in Egypt.

It's amazing how we don't notice much about things we see everyday. Glad you finally noticed these — I think they're amazing. I suppose the camels have bags on them? I was thinking it looked like a cross between a camel and a turtle.

Is this anywhere near the Cleopatra benches? In that case, could be following that Nile connection.
