Lucy the Elephant Building.

Above is the patent. They actually built it! Six stories of pachyderm joy!!!
For all the elephant lovers out there, here is the complete story!

I saw all this first on a website devoted to cool old patents.

I saw this building on a show here in the US dedicated to strange homes. Or at least one like it! I personally think I might like to live in a weird home some day... In the meantime, a home of my own of any kind would be wonderful!
