The Black-And-White-Years: Jimmy Greaves Feeds Cake To A Chimpanzee, 1964

By Ollie Irish

December 1964: Jimmy Greaves attends a Christmas party in Ilford, Essex, in support of the Peoples’ Dispensary For Sick Animals. Here, Jimmy feeds Linda the chimpanzee (in de rigeur cowgirl fancy dress) with a fat slice of Christmas cake. That’s the mark of the man. Well played, Greavsie.

What’s this – a chimp with a knife!? Health & safety wouldn’t allow it these days, alas. Shame, as I’ve always found primates to have impeccable table manners.
