Henry's Ascot Problem. Henry, the organgutan, shares the pressing problem of the day -- What shall I wear for Ascot? He's certainly putting all he knows into fixing his fetching, if somewhat battered, hat at the Bristol Zoo. But he's a hard chap to please - one discarded model is crumpled benesth his disgusted paws. Though Ascto's the highlight of the feminine year, Ann is left in the cold by her vain lord and master. PA Reuter/Daily Herald, 10 June 1950.
