Class trips were a source of intense excitement for the young Rube, and even today, when he spots a building typical of those halcyon days (Figs. 1 and 2), he gets butterflies in his stomach.

The Zoo Center was formerly known as the Elephant House. Fig 3 shows a sculpture by Charles L. Knight, known here for his paintings of prehistoric animals at the American Museum of Natural History.
