    This one made me think of you when I saw it! "Donkey Boys 1904"


    You may have to scroll down to see the picture. Apparently they hired these two to give donkey rides to little kids in Central Park! This has become one of my favorite sites to go to just for fun. Literally thousands of old, old pictures to go through! I can spend hours looking through these before I come up for air!

    If you want to see a lot of donkey pics, Google 'beach donkeys'. They are still used to give donkey rides on some beaches in the UK.

    Every year they hold contests to pick the best beach donkey. Very nice looking animals and very well taken care of.

    I like donkeys, but am a real mule fan at heart.

    Me too, Star! Shorpy is addictive. I just found some I hadn't seen before and got lost in there for over an hour!

    I love this picture with the donkeys though. You almost have to feel sorry for the kid who has been forever immortalized as "Donkey Boy #2"!
