EDITORS COMMENTS
In this delightful snapshot from 1970, we are transported back to a time when even the most mundane tasks could become extraordinary adventures. Walsall Football Club's car wash took on an unexpected twist as it transformed into a "Jumbo Jet" for one very special guest. Gilda, a playful and mischievous 2-year-old circus elephant, found herself in need of a refreshing bath and what better place than the panda-themed car wash on the forecourt of Fellows Park Filling Station. The image captures the sheer joy and wonderment on Gilda's face as she playfully splashes around under the gentle spray of water. Her enormous size juxtaposed against the compact structure of the car wash creates a whimsical scene that is sure to bring smiles to anyone who sees it. This photograph not only showcases an adorable moment between man and animal but also highlights the power of imagination and humor in our everyday lives. It serves as a reminder that even in ordinary situations, there is always room for laughter and unexpected surprises. As we look back at this charming memory from Birmingham Post and Mail's archives, let us appreciate how such simple moments can leave lasting impressions on our hearts. And perhaps next time we find ourselves at a car wash or any other routine task, we may just be inspired to infuse it with some lightheartedness and make it an adventure of our own.
