Lucy Jones "Camel Girl"

* Top 100 *
Remarkable and rare Cabinet Card image of Lucy Elvira Jones who suffered from an advanced form of "congenital genu recurvatum" – also known as "back-bending knee deformity". Like Ella Harper who suffered from the same condition, Lucy was billed as a "Camel Girl." Here she is shown with her accordian, posing most naturally resting on her knees, rather than in the more awkward pose on all fours, as these acts were more commonly posed.
