Daily Herald photograph titled 'How's this for Ascot?' Original caption reads: Word got around at the Bristol Zoo that Ascot's in the offing and Henry, vain orang outang, got out his best sun hat for the dressy affair. Unfortunately, no one told him of Ascot's strict rules and that they prefer males to wear toppers. Daily Herald photograph, 10 June 1950.
