One of our elephants is missing….

Week 59

Celebrations all round, the book is 75% complete! So on to the final three chapters, firstly one on Burton, for which I am currently trying to find a copyright-free historical map. Might as well be looking for an elephant in Camden – which brings me to this week’s pics, of the Elephant House, formerly a William Bradford-designed bottling store for Elephant brand ales. It had a fine pediment, indeed still has part of it, but looking closely amongst the hops, leaves etc, there is the curled end of a trunk – presume the elephant itself was on top of the pediment, reaching down through the date with his trunk. Round the corner (opposite a massive Sainsburys, the size of a biggish castle) is the pedestrian entrance, with a lovely elephant head above it. But, oh no, yet another scaffolding moment – this time I could duck (too many animals this week) underneath and get a sort of pic, clearly no good for publication. Redevelopment happens incredibly quickly in media-driven Camden, so perhaps I’ll go back in May and try for a decent photo. Must rush as am in London again for five minutes later this week (tho not elephant hunting), no time to spare.
