5th November 1975; Guy the gorilla seen here on the 28th anniversary of his arrival at London Zoo - which explains his name. He spent the day rather quietly for an urban gorilla. He weighs in at 33 stone, compared with the 14 lbs on his arrival on the 5th November 1947

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to the 5th of November in 1975, as Guy the gorilla commemorates the 28th anniversary of his arrival at London Zoo. It is no wonder that he bears such a fitting name! Despite being an urban dweller, Guy chose to spend this special day in solitude and tranquility. His facial expression reveals a hint of grumpiness, perhaps reflecting his contemplative state. As we gaze upon this image frozen in time, it is hard not to be awestruck by Guy's sheer size and strength. Weighing an impressive 33 stone (462 lbs), it is astounding to think that when he first arrived on the scene on November 5th, 1947, he was merely a tiny creature weighing just 14 lbs. This photograph captures more than just a gorilla; it encapsulates an era – the vibrant and tumultuous decade of the 1970s. Against the backdrop of Camden in England, Guy stands as a symbol of resilience amidst loneliness. The United Kingdom witnessed his growth over two decades - from a small ape into an awe-inspiring primate. Ron Burton skillfully immortalizes this moment through his lens with great attention to detail and emotion. As we peer into Guy's eyes and witness his quiet demeanor on this significant anniversary, we can't help but feel connected to him across time and space. Memory Lane Prints has once again provided us with a powerful visual journey into history without
