Comments / pictures

1904: Twenty elephants had been sold to Thompson and Dundee and there were also two bachelor elephants which were going to the largest menagerie in the world, that of Luna Park on Coney Island
Animals are my life, by Lorenz Hagenbeck

Named for President Roosevelt's daughter Alice, area school children collected coins and raised $3,250 for the pachyderm's purchase price and travel expenses to Utah.

1931: the elephant kept breaking loose and running down 700 East. Often, she would also run through Salt Lake City.
