'An elephant never forgets' is a belief, so if a person is said to have an elephantine memory, he or she has an extremely good memory.

An old urban myth is still a good urban myth. On a recent nosey around the Elephant and Castle in Southwark, Astragal was reminded of a cracking tale about the unmissable Faraday Memorial. The big silver lump in the centre of the Elephant roundabout looks like a sleek piece of 60s British construction, finely engineered and seamlessly pieced together in a space-age stylee. However, Astragal understands that parts of the Rodney Gordon-designed building required some clever welding and that access to some of the tighter spots was almost impossible to the standard issue, burly, south London torch master. Bring on the specially trained welding dwarves. Apparently mini men had to be taught how to solder so that the memorial could be completed. Of course, it could just be a tall story.
