The above sketch is of the Caribou Hotel’s dining room in Carcross. Polly the parrot’s cage is shown in the front window.
During a recent trip to Carcross, I met Jamie Toole, who is restoring the Caribou Hotel. He is trying to locate the famous parrot’s cage.
Where did it go?
Anybody out there who knows, please share the information with us. Also, anybody who knows interesting stories about Polly, the celebrated old bird who lived in the hotel’s dining room for many, many years, please share the stories.
If you have any photos of Polly, please send us a copy by snail mail or email.
It would be great to bring Polly’s cage back home.
