London's Elephants - No. 7 in the series



London's Elephants again! This one has to be the least known, tucked away in Crouch End. This topiary elephant is so quintessentially british, I love it. Somewhat difficlut to get a clear shot with all the cars and the roadworks, here is another view.

please, please, use the one from elephant and castle, for its beautiful-while-horrific allure.

I love elehants eyes. They look like they know something but aren't telling!

anon - Yes, the Elephant & Castle is in the list, but it is also the most obvious one, and the only one most people know. For those reasons, I'm afraid it will come at the end, at least of the "3D" elephants, which isn't that far away. I think this one is my favourite, for being so quirky.

Love this one, Ham! The one outside the casino,No 3, is still my favourite, though,just because I love Curzon Street.
By the way, this topiary elephant is great, do you think the house owner did make it, or it is the work of a professional gardener?

Your topiary elephant is one of my favorites! It's so big and lumbering--looks as if it is taking a stroll down the sidewalk and pushing the gate post out of the way. Love this series!
