Caption from the National Library of Ireland: More tigers, but not as nature intended... These sadly deflated creatures adorned the hall of Glencairn Abbey, Tallow, Co. Waterford. The Abbey is now known as St. Mary's Abbey and is occupied by the only community of Cistercian nuns in Ireland. I would imagine that the tiger skins are long gone... Date: Thursday, 3 February 1916
For Edgar's 167th birthday, a look at his home in The Bronx:

Cigarette card with photograph of Annette Kellerman in costume from the film A Daughter of the Gods, c 1916 This publicity still from 'A Daughter of the Gods' (1916) shows the famous Australian swimming star, Annette Kellerman, in costume for her role as Anitia.

The film had a production budget of USD $1,000,000 - testament to Kellerman's celebrity at the time. Sadly, the film has not survived the test of time. (From the Australian National Maritime Museum)
