EASILY DISTRACTED

There was not much going on at the Zoo in the early 1900s.   There was an occasional ice skating accident, a coasting accident,  or something involving city politics, so as a historian, becoming distracted is simple.  The diversion in the September 1924 Press was a wedding between Sarah Elizabeth and the dashing theater organist Jack Edward in Norfolk, Virginia.  The curious part of this wedding was their ages.  He was a handsome and debonair 29 years and she was a wealthy widow of 82.
