from Miles:
I took these photos last year while visiting the town I grew up in and hadn’t been back to in 20 years.

The elephant was called Nancy, and was the favorite animal of circus owner, William Duggan. Nancy, still a baby, followed him to the hospital the day he died. His brother commissioned the life size 6 foot tall headstone in honor of William Duggan and Nancy.

wendyvee: Thank you, Miles! Of course, like with all “wonders” I had to snoop around on Google Maps. I love that the aerial view shows Nancy’s shadow! Also see a profile of William Duggan at Find-A-Grave.
