"Churchillís day trip to Belfast was brought to a close by his being hastily dispatched to the railway station by a circuitous route to avoid angry unionist crowds in the centre of Belfast."

"A special train conveyed him to Larne. Many unionists felt that Churchill left Ulster rather like the thief in the night that his father had warned them of a generation earlier."

Yes Jilly, before Elizabeth's Father became King he and Churchill were equals at the top of the aristocracy.
Churchill was born in Blenhim Palace.

One of the most bizarre photographs I have ever seen. Clearly there is a riot going on, but there, stuck in the middle of it all is, an Elephant. Can anyone explain this ? (no wisecracks please) did anyone witness this event ? Does anyone have any knowledge of this ?   :)


IMHO, there's something not right about the whole perspective of the elephant in this image.

In particular, look at the outline of the elephant's front legs, for they don't look natural for being 'in situ'.  Its front right leg seems very awkwardly placed in the context of the surrounding image, and despite it being on the ground (it has to be, since the front left leg definitely isn't), the footpad isn't sitting flat on what otherwise looks like flat ground.  In addition, the definition of both front legs is at odds with the smoky consistency of the immediate surroundings, in particular note the back of the man's leg that can be seen between the elephants front legs - the man is obviously VERY close to the elephant, but his leg is in a veil of smoke that somehow stops abruptly at the outline edge of the elephant's leg. (It mightn't be actual smoke, it might just be a cloudy discoloration on the photo, either way, the elephant's front legs don't seem to be affected while other parts of the image around it are.  In that regard, also look at the second soldier from the left and how his head and helmet seem to have strangely 'bled' into the elephant's leg. Curious or what?).

So while the image of the riot looks genuine, I wouldn't rule out it having been manipulated to add the elephant. Look forward to hearing other opinions...

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

JackM I would say also that the photo is superimposed . As CMcG says , the front legs of the elephant arenít right , they donít ďblend ď with the mans legs behind .
