I'm not a fan of telephones ... I much prefer email, or better yet, a note in the mail, but this postcard of the camel at a pay phone is one of my all-time favorites. I have a small camel collection, many are wood sculptures, a few are fabric or ceramic, and lots of postcards. Camels are not a common collecting interest, so I suspect my collection will always be rather small.
Laura was in Israel in 2000 for her daughter's Bat Mitzvah. They rode camels in the desert and the guide was always on his cell phone. Imagine that ... ancient transportation and contemporary communication all at once!
