    2. I don't think it is a suit Bridget. The elephant looks real to me. What made you think it was a suit?

    3. I think it might be a person in an elephant suit because I think the feet look a bit funky or is that how a real elephants feet look like?

  7. I think this is in the 1900 based on what they are wearing and how the picture is black and white

    1. I think that it is a photograph taken from today as it seems unlikely that a photograph that old would come up in the news. I also think that its black and white on purpose.

  8. I think it might be a play or a photograph that is possibly trying to get a message across

  9. Maybe someone has dressed up in a elephant suit and went to a clothes gallery, because the feet of the elephant look kind of weird, but maybe its ment to be like that?

  10. The elephant looks like it is a statue or a drawing because the people around it don't look alarmed. Although the elephant does look lifelike.

    1. I think that the elephant is real but it is there on purpose which is why people are not alarmed

  14. I think it might be the 1800's because one of the maniquins look its in a hip hop outfit.

  16. I think it is the 1970's because that is when hip hop was popular.

  17. Caption:
    March 1980: “Please keep walking and react to the elephant,” instructed the man with the megaphone who trailed the creature; apparently, it was for a film. But if this picture is any indication, it seems the window mannequins were more reactive than your average New Yorker, right, who just wanted to get where he was going.“
