Zoomorphism Returns: Lucy the Elephant Turns 132-Years-Old

I had fun finding buildings shaped like cats in an earlier post, now here’s a building shaped like an elephant just twenty miles away from my home.   (Zoomorphism: buildings shaped like animals.)

Lucy the Elephant, Margate, New Jersey


Here’s the party invitation complete with music.

Lucy even had her toes done for this special event, and so did the lucky Lucy staff.

Here’s a little Lucy history . . . with a surprise at the end!

Lucy the Elephant

Lucy the Elephant has weathered some storms in her time, but the last one, Superstorm Sandy in 2012, was a stand-off. Lucy stood her ground, and although her toes got wet and some neighboring homes and businesses suffered damage, Lucy survived. Here’s a news report about Lucy and Sandy: Lucy the Elephant Survived Sandy.

Now you can buy a Lucy T-shirt that says:

You can find Lucy the Elephant on Facebook at Lucy the Elephant. Go and “like” her.

Lucy is how old? Oh my. And where’s my t-shirt? And why can’t I have pretty painted toe nails like Lucy? And when is my birthday? And how are you going to celebrate it? Let’s get back to the important stuff!

Meow for now. =<^!^>=

  1. I had never heard of Lucy before; what an extraordinary survivor from a bygone age.
