The Elephant Gate in Bolton

Humphrey Jennings and the Elephant Gate in Bolton ... in this documentary they're making a big fuss about him linking exotic and industrial climes ... ut the elephant is known as the Bolton image ... it's on the town crest ... Bolton is exotic, I always found it an exotic landscape as well as a Lancashire one, through the links to India through the cotton trade and the recent large immigrant community, the Pakistani shops their bright goods in the red-brick rained-on cobble streets.
