In this picture we can see that donkeys have also been used for recreation. The picture was taken in Atlantic City on the beach. You can see a donkey pulling a small cart, and you can see three donkeys taking some beach goers for a ride. The picture was taken around 1900.


  1. Hard to tell, but I think the animal pulling the cart is actually a pony. The other three being ridden are donkeys.

  2. Interesting --- riding a donkey in your bathing suit. I wonder if they had to clean up after their mounts?
