    The camel was originally made at the request of the amusement park owner's daughter, Emily Bourgard. The Allen Hershell Company was commissioned to create extraordinarily ornate carousel animals for the family machine. This carved, one-of-a-kind camel was part of the menagerie of animals. The machine was made even larger to accommodate these bigger animals, resulting in one of the most spectacular carousels ever made.
