Jamrach and the Tiger
Public DomainJamrach and the Tiger
Charles Jamrach (1815-1891) was a German dealer in wildlife who ran an exotic animal shop and a menagerie in the east end of London.  He traded in rhinoceroses, cougars, tigers, wombats and elephants, among other species. 

On one occasion, Jamrach famously wrestled with an escaped tiger to save the life of a small boy (pictured).  His own account of the event can be read here.

Although Jamrach had died by the time of Dracula's publication, two of his sons kept the business going until 1919.
