There are Elephants in the Room … # 7
A happy elephant-packed Sunday to you all. Yes it’s day 7 of my quest to cure myself of the dreaded 1951 Elephant Fixation.
The Elephant and Castle is a major road junction in South London in the London Borough of Southwark. The name is derived from a local coaching inn.
This black and white photograph shows the facade of the ABC cinema Elephant & Castle, circa 1951. The film being shown is Distant Drums, staring Gary Cooper. I say circa 1951 because although the film was released in America in late December 1951, it probably had its first UK screenings in early 1952.
