hi luke my contacts inform me that the head, spear and toe was finally scrapped sorry after 2011 but whereabouts unknown and regarding the roundabout ride outside the market I remember this as a child with my parents eating ice cream and just watching it go around, now I started work at the market in 1976 and may have known uncle bob and auntie flo but not sure, but I was sorry and very upset to see the roundabout go from outside but now its inside but I was one of the team to do this but it will never be the same. Cheers

I remember going to the zoo and being upset by the elephant. It was displayed in an enclosure made entirely of concrete with a chain attached to one of its legs. It stood there just rocking from side to side. Never have liked zoos since. So glad attitudes towards how we treat wild animals have changed over the years.

A recent Coventry Telegraph article discusses the Coventry zoo and the Zulu statue (from 15 October 2017). Smile

It's a shame they didn't decide to pass what was left of the Zulu to The Herbert Sad
