Photograph titled 'To-To makes a 'Saint' out of Pole-Pole'. Caption on back reads: 'Trying to make a "Saint" of her offspring is London Zoo's African elephant To-To. Nine-years-old To-To is quite an expert with tricks using old motor tyres, and she is now trying to teach some of them to baby Pole-Pole, whose name, in Swahili, means "Mischievous one". Could be quite a task To-To's at herself, trying to make a "Saint" out of an "Imp"! Picture shows - To-To putting a tyre on baby elephant Pole-Pole's head at the London Zoo recently'.
