Elephant rides

By Cynthia Bergstrand

I was three years old in 1940 and lived in the village of Upton. When one of my friends had a birthday we were often given 6d to go to the Zoo. We could have a ride on the elephant who was there with its owner who was Indian.
The daughter of the owner came to St. Mary's school in Upton.
