    Did you know there was an elephant stampede in Riverside
    on April 17,1908 Text copy and photo is copied here. The
    elephant leading the stampede was named Floto. Floto was
    owned by the circus Sells-Floto Circus. The cause of the
    incident occurred  when a Standard Oil wagon caught fire
    and ignited tents of the circus. Our original reference is
    from an excerpt from 'An American Chinatown' by Wong Ho
    Leun, volume one 1987, page 121, reference is sited from
    Tom Patterson - 1971.

    The common folk are rarely discussed in any History. Most
    Historical records only tell the stories of those who caused
    significant changes of their time. What about that common
    family that lived in your house 50 or 100 years ago? Where
    did they work? What store was at a specific address on Main
    Street in downtown? Riverside Pioneers where those
    common folks. Those people who took on responsibilities for
    their town and home. They are the ones who made Riverside
    History. They were willing to help in any way or help anyone.
    They were the ones who made the City of Riverside grow and
    prosper.
