Today's Treasures At St Katharine Docks (9) The Elephants On the Dock Gates

Designed by Peter Drew (the 'Architect' of what we now know as the Marina). They are made of fibreglass and represent the ivory which was such an important commodity for the old Telford's Docks; hence the name of Ivory House, converted from one of the original warehouses.
