London's Elephants - No 9 in a series



Todays elephant post is going to be a small quiz as well. If you are a Londoner, or even if you have visited London you have probably seen this elephant without realising it. But where is it, do you know? A London Daily Photo Postcard Prize to the first with the right answer. A second Postcard prize to anyone who knows the four letter word associated with this. More general pic and info tomorrow.

Well if you have been to see the PROMs in the Royal Albert Hall you may well have seen this in the gardens over the road on the Albert Memorial.

Actually Ham, although I went there many times in my youth to sail my boat on The Round Pond I didn't remember this and cheated just striking really lucky on Google here. Nice photo though. Funny how prudish those Victorians got - they didn't seem to have any problems here!

No idea Ham, but I'm really interested to know the background of this one, an Indian woman with three men (Arabic, Turkish? and Chinese?)...looks like there is some history behind this

Very nice photo Ham! But have no idea where this is :(

Peter, looks like you have the first Postcard, the Albert Memorial it is.

Would the four-letter word be Asia?

 

Blogger Jing said ... (15:42) : 

no ideas about its detailed information..:p
but i guess there may be a very interesting story ...

Congratulations, Helen, the second postcard winner! Did you know or was it a search? Either way you get the card - email your address to londondailyphoto [at] gmail.com

I am glad to say that I knew. I love the Albert Memorial and stop to look whenever I happen to be near there. In fact, I go out of my way to stare at the four continent figures.

No matter the location or the name, this photo is very well done, Ham. A beautiful addition to your enjoyable series!
