Mystery History -- Solved!
I stumped everyone this week.
In the photo above, a chimpanzee enjoys some supervised free time on a goal post at Tournament Park in 1923.
The Elks Lodge put on a carnival at the park that year with rides and other attractions, including a side show. The chimp was a big draw.
He was a friendly chimp.
Many thanks to Pasadena Public Library.
