Wenda & Ostriches

This Norman Parkinson image entitled “Wenda & Ostriches” appeared in the pages of Vogue in 1951. Apparently ostriches were the fashion accessory to have that year. Marianne sent me this card from Germany, and wonders how they pulled this shot off, and how fast they had to run afterwards. Actually, I suspect that the ostriches were fairly tame, though one does wonder how this particular ostrich reacted when it realized it was being used as a horse.
