Photograph titled 'If you want me, I'm in the bucket'. Caption on back reads: 'Baby gorilla Julchen, obviously thinks that a bucket is as good a parking place as any - although it won't be long before she has to find another place for a quiet sit-down. When she was brought to the Frankfurt Zoo seven months ago from Africa by a sailor, she weighed only 10 pounds - now she tips the scales at 31 pounds - a sign that the Frankfurt Zoo is a good place to live well in'.
