The man, the myth, the legend, and the llama! Just a normal day at the office for Robert Moses, it would seem, as he confidently feeds Sir Lancelot from his hand. Finding photographs like this that have lost their conceptual information is a beauty and a curse. We know this happened because it is documented, but why did it happen Why is there a llama in Moses office How long was his visit Was he a friendly llama Was he there for a significant event Robert Moses, the man, is also a conundrum.
Tomorrow our exhibition, The Land of Robert Moses: Robert Moses and Modern Long Island, opens in the History Museum.
