Elephant Rides

By GILL MCMAHON

I recently visited Perth Zoo in Western Australia. One of their elephants, Trisha, takes a daily afternoon walk around the Zoo much to the excitement of both me and my two grand-daughters. I recalled that, when I was a young girl, around 1955, I had a ride on the back of an elephant at Chester. Am I right or is it wishful thinking?!!
