Hidden Book Treasure No 13: Kanga-zoo


From the pages of a very tatty, damp-spoiled edition of a Readers Digest Gardening Encyclopaedia, came this unexpected troop of kanagaroos.  Looking like an idealised tableaux from an early Ladybird book, there's even a giraffe in the background and boy wearing shorts. One of whom is probably called Peter...

If you recognise the zoo from the scant architectural clues in the photo we'd love to know which one it is.

April 2017: Thank you to Markolomew for recognising the venue as Bristol Zoo.

Fabulous! Looks like a still from some kind of experimental film from the 70s...

Hi James. Yes, there is a touch of the surreal about this set up. So wish there had been a few more photo's from this particular daytrip stashed in that old gardening book. Um.
The photographer managed to get very close to those'roos too!

Its Bristol Zoo I have a photo of myself in a pushchair outside the giraffe house in the background taken in about 1969.
