Edmonton Photo Caption: 0050.0900

Collage of 3 photos of elephants and destruction, with following cutline:


            “Fourteen elephants of the Sells-Floto circus stampeded Sunday afternoon and six of them took upon themselves the “freedom of the city,” one, “Mary,” being so naughty as to stay out all night.  Picture No. 1 shows the commencement of the stampede.  Before it started both wagons had been going in the same direction.  No. 2 shows damage done to the chicken coops at the general hospital, and No. 3 shows a fence on a 112th street property wrecked when the pachyderms tried to run between it and the house.”
