Two of Bolton's Elephants
Two of Bolton's Elephants

Three colourful elephants, Ellie, Elner and Mr Jackbow, were named by young competition winners in 2007 and installed on Newport Street. Kenneth Allen and Bill Nicholls photographed them when they were there SD7108 : Bolton elephants (1) - SD7108 : Bolton elephants (2) - SD7108 : Elephants on parade. In 2015 they were moved to beside a play park in Octagon Square. I have only photographed two of them as a little boy and his mum were playing by the third and I didn't wish to disturb them.
