Elephants in town

Forget the complaints of the buses being allowed in the pedestrian area in Bargate and damaging the road surface, forget health and safety, look back instead at the sensible days of the 1950's when vehicles ran both ways and even elephants were allowed through the town. In those days it was customary when the Circus came to town to have a parade showing the animals. This picture shows elephants in Strait Bargate opposite to where W.H. Smiths shop is now.
