[Elephants in Newport Street]

These elephants are at the southern end of Newport Street, and around Bolton, there are many references to elephants.

The elephants were removed for a short while and have been replaced and repaired and are very bright looking! (The reason only two are shown is that the third had an unsightly hole in it).
