A photograph of an elephant giving a group of visitors a ride on his back, taken by James Jarche for the Daily Herald newspaper. Five or six passengers appear to be belted onto a bench strapped on the elephant's back. Two little girls in matching frilly dresses and sun-hats hold buns out for the elephant to take in his trunk. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
