Do you remember the Mechanical Elephant ?


At a party this weekend the subject of Margate's mechanical elephant was brought up in conversation in between the disco music and alcohol. Just to prove that I have a memory like an Elephant I have reproduced Tim Keenan's article from Bygone Margate Volume 7 Number 1 January 2004 for the person concerned.

Alternatively it could now be residing in Adelaide after a sojourn with Peter Sellers. Click here to see more on that, and old Pathe footage.
