Elephants In The Avon

A sight that hadn’t been seen before or will be seen again!!

Circus Elephants bathing and drinking in the Avon River by the Armagh Street Bridge in 1934!!

They had just been a part of a parade promoting the Christchurch famous Hay’s Department Store.  They were part of the visiting Wirth’s Circus, set up somewhere along Moorhouse Ave.
