Student Scanned Image This image was digitized by a student at Friendship Village School. Learn more.

This Camp Durrell postcard was sent by a camper to his mother in Dedham, Massachusetts. The team of oxen, Tom and Jerry, were used for chores around the camp.

The oxen were thought to represent the healthy rural life that the camp promoted to perspective campers, who came primarily from Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The camp was founded by the YMCAs of Massachusetts and Rhode Island in 1894.
