Live Every Day Like You're Sophia Loren Holding a Lion Cub in This Picture from 1973

This is Sophia Loren, holding a lion club named Sophia, on a 1973 outing to the newly opened West Midland Safari Park in Bewdley, Worcestershire, England. But it could be you, with a little attitude, openness to synthetic fibers, and access to exotic wildlife.

Why was there a safari park in Worcestershire, England, of all places? Not sure, but it’s still there. Also, that kid behind her is Loren’s four-year-old son, Cipi. He apparently dressed like a tiny Instagram celebrity.
