Princeton the tiger is shown here in a photo taken 114 years ago this month. Princeton was an early inhabitant of the Bronx Zoo’s Lion House, which opened in 1903. This photo is part of our historical negatives collection with images dating back to the opening of the Bronx Zoo in 1899.

    Great choice! Do we know which of the Lion House exhibit spaces Princeton was in when the photo was taken? Thanks for posting!

      Thanks, Scott! We are unsure of which exact enclosure Princeton was in, but it might have been one of the ones on the sides of the building.
