Description
A row of elephants from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus lumber over downtown pavement on 11th Street heading toward Grand Avenue on July 19, 2005. The herd of pachyderms walks past a large building surrounded by scaffolding as handlers and bicycle police keep them in a single-file line. Two of the elephants toward the back of the line have a large brand on their right rear-side in the shape of a star. The last two elephants are walking tail to trunk.
