Brussels, 1910 Exhibition Fire
Brussels, 1910 Exhibition Fire
In 1910 a "World's Fair" was held in Brussels. In August of that year there was a fire which destroyed many of the exhibits. It seems that many
wild animals were left to perish in the flames, this being seen as preferable to releasing them into the crowd watching the conflagration. The
only animal to survive was an elephant. There is a French language website with lots more postcards of the exhibition and the fire -
