London's Elephants - No 31 in a Series

Shot with Olympus E520
Before London Daily Photo grinds to a halt, I had to bring you this elephant. Not the best photo - I had to sneak it and I've been trying since to get a better one - it is inside the Oriental Club in Stafford Place, just of Oxford Street. The African Indian Elephant is their emblem, and they have been a quintessential London institution since 1824, so it had to join the series. (thanks tot he Secretary of the Oriental Club for the correction!)

Stratford Place is a cul-de-sac, and you would not normally turn into it; you can see a view outside of the building here. The elephant is to the right as you go in.
