This image of an elephant fishing near the Blue Water Bridge is a bit of a mystery. It was found in a large collection of photos and slides donated by Tourism Sarnia-Lambton to the Lambton County Archives. Jumbo stands on a bollard used to tie up ships, so the incident pre-dated the redevelopment of Point Edward’s shoreline. Dear reader, if you have any information about this fishing elephant or why he was posing at posing at the bridge, please let us know by emailing [email protected] or calling 519-491-5532.
