Description

This picture is of historical interest and was sketched only 4 years after London zoo or the Zoological Gardens, as it was called then, officially opened to the public.
It wasn’t until 1867 that the word zoo entered the international vocabulary when it was made popular by ‘The Great Vance’, a famous Edwardian who sang:
” The ok thing to do on a Sunday afternoon is to toddle in the zoo.”
The Zoological Gardens in London opened in 1828 only to members of the Society, known as the fellows, and their friends. It was only later in 1847 that the zoo opened it’s doors to the public, for financial reasons.
Pencil and watercolour highlighted with white on paper. Inscribed in pencil; Zoological Gardens Regents Park, B. Hubbard, August 1851, (bottom left). Beautifully presented with a wash line mount in a gilded and glazed wood frame.
Image: 10 in x 14in. (25.5 cm x 35.5cm.)
Frame: 22 1/2 in x 18 1/4 in. (57.1 cm x 46.4 cm.)
