KOTD-21-Collections-Elephant-Card

#KeeperoftheDay – More from 21 Collections. Walnut Elephant, a recreation of the life-size elephant made of walnuts created for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair by the LA Chamber of Commerce, helping to sell Southern California as a land of prosperity. See it live at Los Angeles Central Library, now through January 27, 2019.

The walnuts, we understand, came from Craig McNamara’s farm.
