I recently acquired a fully functional mechanical elephant made by Stuart at an antique auction in Orlando, FL.It's an earlier model that's smaller and much less complex than the one in the video....If anyone would like photos or video footage, feel free to contact me.....Rickrickantonio@att.net
The mechanical elephant in the video is the one operated in Margate in England.
