Flock of llamas: first in Britain

A flock of llamas, including a young one, the first flock to be imported to Britain, are tended by their owner Benjamin Whitehead Gee.  In 1858 they were brought overland from Peru to New York, and then by ship to Glasgow, and thence to Acton. They were reared for their fleece, which was used to make alpaca cloth.
