Ella Harper: the Camel Girl

Ella Harper: the Camel Girl

Born in Tennessee in 1873, known as the "Camel Girl" She was born with an orthopedic condition that caused her knees to bend backwards, called "congenital genu recurvatum". This deformity is very rare. Her preference to walk on all fours resulted in her nickname "Camel Girl".
