just yawning...


just yawning..., originally uploaded by emily999.

how we felt after all the walking/heat. It's a cool zoo originally created in 1893 or so. Some of the bear enclosures were from 1937 and were part of the Great Depression recovery program; Civilian Conservation Corps.



I always find this amazing for several reasons...1. my grandfather participated in this, 2. the work is usually still standing to this day 3. You can find the work nearly everywhere...parks, zoos, even post office murals. Amazingly familiar and a wonderful historical marker of times people struggled through.
