Marilyn Makes a Trunk – 1956 Sepia Saturday #133

When I was growing up my sister, my cousins and I always made a yearly trip to the Detroit zoo with our mothers and grandfather, Poppy.  My youngest cousin Marilyn was impressed by the elephants trunk this year and went around making her arm into a trunk afterwards.

    And a fine trunk it was. I bet the grown-ups had many good laughs over Marilyn’s new trick.

    Another post that brings back memories. My son would giggle and giggle when I made an elephant trunk and noise.

    What a gorgeous photo. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve shown some pictures from Detroit Zoo as well this week but don’t have a story to match Marilyn.

    It’s so amazing that most of us have elelphant photos in our collections. Yours is a real gem.

    I can remember doing the “elephant has a great big trunk” with our kids but don’t have any photos as I recall, certainly none of this vintage. Lovely pic.

      I would have written more about our annual trip to the zoo but I’m saving it for Z is for Zoo. Thank you for the nomination. I’m on my way to see it.

  9. Another terrific photo! The extra detail on the twist of Marilyn’s arm makes it a treasure.
