FEATURED PHOTO

In Whanganui in January 1963 there was an elephant race from the Town Bridge, up Victoria Avenue, to the DIC Department Store, a distance of 274 metres. This photograph is of the winning elephant sitting outside the DIC. After the race two elephants entered the DIC and one of them signed autographs with a rubber stamp held in its trunk. They stayed in the store for a short period of time before returning to their home at the Bullen Circus.
