The 'Elephant' Door

Somewhere on the northside of Dresden, there's this charming old house...probably built around 1905 to 1910.  The doorway....the standard tall door of the era.  The artsy work? This was the odd thing....a giant elephant piece over the doorway.

Some story?  You'd sit and ponder over this.  This original guy...probably from 1905....who built the house....probably had some years in India or Africa.  Maybe he was a safari guy, or just some zoo-manager in the local area of Dresden.

A nifty symbol of the house?, I bet everyone within a mile of the home......knows of the elephant over the door, and has some invented story of who this guy was.
