Unusual paddler on the beach

Have been trawling through the museum photographs again and my attention was grabbed by this unusual shot.

Is it definitely Brighton beach? When was it? Where did the elephant come from?

  • If it is Brighton then the only place the elephant could come from would be a circus. Billy Smart’s Circus was on The Level in the late 1950s which would agree with the keeper’s uniform and the publics dress. Regards
