I mentioned a while ago I had been editing some picture left by my late grandfather and was amazed how much things had changed over the years, and I have to say in this case for the better. The picture above shows the terrible conditions most Zoo animals were kept in but I do think that we need to look at his fairly, these places were no being cruel they just did not know any better, there are places in the world that still house animals in these conditions and whether you agree with Zoos or not it is a sad fact that without them several of our most impressive species on the planet would be lost to extinction by now.
However the point of this is not a serious discussion on morals but a light hearted look at the places as they were and the issues that would have the man with a clip board collapsing at….
We complain at times that Health and Safety legislation has gone mad but when you look at these you realise
sometimes we need protecting from ourselves.
