This isn't a python solution, but if you have an ssh connection to
both servers, (I assume so) you can forward them directly. It would
look like this in an operating system shell like tcsh or bash:

me at baz> scp -r me at foo.com:/home/me/pictures me at bar.com:/somewhere/

You could wrap the above command with python via the subprocess module
if needed.
