Our Giraffe


"She is now in high health and beauty. Her arrival created the greatest satisfaction and enthusiasm...She was first placed in a large building called the Orangery...Nothing could exceed the curiosity she excited. Her place of exercise was generally surrounded by 10,000 persons at a time...This eagerness lasted for many weeks, and not only all the people of Paris, but of the environs went to behold the giraffe. A fresh portrait of her was published every week; representations of her, in various attitudes, decorated every box, every fan, and even the ribbons of the ladies; and men and women wore gloves, shoes, waistcoats, gowns, and bonnets of the same colour as the spots on her sides."
  The Penny Magazine
November 3, 1832
