I can't believe they had to wear suits to the beach.  Plus, what is that dark circle in that wave out there? Click on the pic to blow it up. The Jersey shore circa 1904. "Steel Pier, Atlantic City."

P.T. Barnum's prize elephant Jumbo was killed September 15, 1885, crossing railroad tracks in St. Thomas, Ontario. The collision derailed the train, and 150 people were required to haul the elephant's body up an embankment.    Jumbo's death was a great loss to Barnum's show, but the loss was somewhat mitigated when both the taxidermied hide of the beast and its skeleton were exhibited together.    Vital statistics: height 11.5 feet, weight 6.5 tons, age 24
