1960

Mechanical elephant

By Peter Evans

I have a photo somewhere of my sister and I riding on a mechanical Elephant with the house in the background. I'm 65 and I think the period was in the 1950's.
I'll search for it and let you know. I worked at the zoo at weekends when I was 17. I used to drive to Saltney to get stale bread for the elephants. I drove a VW van. I also used to take the dried ice to the mobile ice cream sellers around the zoo.
