Below the picture an inscription reads:

Zoological Gardens. – The gardens of the Zoological Society of  London, situated at the north end of Regent’s Park, contain the largest, and by far the best arranged, collection of wild beasts, birds, and reptiles in the world.

They take rank, moreover, among the most popular places of open-air amusement in London.

The Zoological Society was instituted in 1826, and two years later the first collection of animals was established here.

In this view one of the big elephants at the Zoo is seen slowly perambulating the gardens beneath his customary infantile burden.

Indeed, this view is one familiar not only to every Londoner, but to virtually every man, woman, and child in the kingdom.

The yearly cost of maintaining these gardens amounts to more than £25,000, and the number of visitors in 1894 was over 600,000. 

If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available, each page is original and not a photocopy.
