CONEY ISLAND! Stereoview from New Educational Series, Liberty Brand, "Made Especially for Fine Trade," titled 74. The Elephant, Coney Isl. The Elephantine Colossus, otherwise known as the Colossal Elephant or the Elephant Colossus, or by its function as the Elephant Hotel, was a tourist attraction located on Coney Island that was built in the shape of an elephant. An example of novelty architecture, the seven-story tall structure designed by James V. Lafferty stood above Surf Avenue and West 12th Street from 1885 until 1896, when it burnt down in a fire. During its lifespan, the thirty-one room building acted as a hotel, concert hall, and amusement bazaar. It was the second of three elephants built by Lafferty, preceded by Atlantic City's Lucy the Elephant and followed by The Light of Asia in Cape May.
