We attempt to offer a selection of images which may appeal to those with an interest in zoo history. Our gallery is grouped under the following headings:
Images of collections that have closed. This may include period photographs, maps, ephemera, etc.
The fragments that remain
Images of the remains of zoos which can still been seen today, plus information on where to find them.
Famous people and animals plus iconic zoo buildings from history.
Images that prompt further queries. This may include the identification of a particular collection, person or animal, or simply a request for further information about the subject.
New featured galleries will be added on a regular basis. Each will be focused on a specific subject, be it an individual collection, housing for a particular type of animal, or something more esoteric. Featured galleries added to date are listed below:
