A photograph of an elephant giving a group of zoo visitors a ride, taken in June 1933 by James Jarché for the Daily Herald.

The elephant ambles along the path, passing families enjoying a day out. A man, probably a zoo keeper, sits at the front of the elephant guiding it along. Five or six passengers appear to be belted onto a bench strapped on the elephant's back. Two little girls in matching frilly dresses and sun-hats hold buns out for the elephant to take in his trunk.
