What year is this ad?
is this the "Topsy" of the Campbell that was killed in the train fire near Pawnee City Nebraska around 1904?

Also would you have any background info concerning the other Campbell Bros.elephants,
"Venus" and"Baby Hamburg"
that also died in that train fire?
I was wondering, if perhaps this is the same Topsy,perhaps Venus's name was changed?
Venus was a mature female Asian elephant.

This book was published in 1911 well after the Campbell Bros. fire.
