That elephant's front legs certainly do look out of proportion. Also the rioting crowd on the pavement, left of photo are not giving the beast the attention you would in those circumstances.Was the space occupied by the elephant not a barricade or car of some sort that has been air brushed out and the image of an elephant put it its place ?

Superb photographs Jack of Sir Winston.

The greatest man of our time-we owe a tremendous debt to him for the lives we have been fortunate
to live in freedom and democracy in G.B. and Northern Ireland against all the odds when we stood alone.
He and the Royal family gave the people the strength and determination to defeat Germany ,Hitlar and
his diabolical plans to rule the world under the Nazi Jackboot.

May this never be forgotten by future generations.

Lol. That's up for debate.

The workers in the shipyard  'clocked' each other in and out of H&W, working 4 days a week, getting paid for 5.
This went on, right through till the 1980's.

Montgomery treated his mother abysmally.... A hard horrible self centred egotist. He never went to his own mothers funeral. How awful.

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 .


The more I look at this photo, the more I think that the smoky effect is indeed actual smoke from the discharge of several baton guns by the soldiers clustered at the left / front of the Pig, the soldier third from left is several yards (nearer to the camera) behind this cluster, so he stands out in high relief against the smoke in front of him.

The smoke shrouding the cluster of soldiers at the left / front of the Pig has then risen and drifted to the left, where the lamp post is.  In other words, it is all foreground smoke through which you can see the background houses and people.  That's why the elephant looks so fake, for while someone has attempted to make it look as if it is part of the background, as you say it has simply been superimposed, obliterating the foreground smoke (and part of the head and helmet of the second soldier from the left).

Maybe I am over analysing this, lol.

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

No youíre right , the more you look at the elephant the more you see the outline of it being superimposed.

Many thanks once again Jack for the terrific photographs.

Colin and Ali seem to have `cracked`the elephant`s appearance!
I am just relieved he was not in the middle of all that mayhem!
Just somone`s idea of a joke it seems.

Ref #15742. Not all young men in Belfast were idle malingerers.My Father left Belfast in March 1940 and came to England.He worked all over
UK until his retirement. Prior to leaving Belfast he worked for McCue & Dick (Timber importers)
Had he not came to England I wouldn't be posting this comment.

The infatuation with Churchill is a mystery to me,some basic research will show you all what a Tyrant and war criminal he actually was.

Greatest Briton? You're having a laugh.
