Short Film: 8.30pm The Elephant Will Never Forget (1953)
The film, completed in London's 'Last Tram Week', takes you round the streets of South London and along the Embankment with two Cockneys who remember a song about trams they sang in the music halls fifty years ago. Finally, 20,000 Londoners cheer and sing their goodbyes to the trams which for ninety-one years had rattled and clanged their way past - particularly through the colourful and lively part of South London near the Elephant & Castle.
