Chipperfield at Harringay Arena, Part I

This photograph was found during research of the June 2011 ShowMe Elephants post, "Jim Stockley Collection - Chipperfields 1956." The post has garnered over 70 comments relating to the 1947/1948 import of elephants from Ceylon by the Chipperfield circus family, what became of these elephants and the eight elephants sold to Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus for their 1963/1964 European Tour.

"Blackie, baby elephant of the Harringay Circus, arches an appreciative trunk as Mae West comes up to see him at the end of the performance. Miss West was appearing in London in her own play, January 15th 1948."

I eagerly anticipate associating with new individuals with an interest or history in elephants, elephant history and elephant record keeping. If you have further information regarding the animals or locations questioned in the article, please leave a comment or message me in an effort to complete their records for elephant historians.
