Elephants in the Landscape

Elephants

Every now and then, the subject of elephants rears its heads. Usually it is someone asking exactly where the elephant was buried near the viaduct near Stratford. No-one knows exactly. Then someone else comes out with all their Gippsland Elephants stories.

But this one came out of no-where (or, to be more exact, the back of the Cannon album we were cataloguing).

Unfortunately the light got into the film, so it is not perfect. But you can just see the Cir-Cus truck in the background. We don't know where this was, but we know they did come to Maffra in times past. You can see them HERE.

You can see the larger version of ours HERE.

That is such a great photo to have. Can you work out whose circus caravan it is?
