Drills, Chester 1972

Baboon pens, 14th July 1972 These cages were very unsatisfactory; stone walls and wire mesh, concrete and gravel underfoot, with small shelters. The Barbary macaque group did quite well in a double sized one, but the other species never really looked at home in them.

      It was one of them, I don't know exactly which one it was.

      i think you said it was a baboon of some sort (what type did chester have?)

      Great shot- your talents are evident even back then...

      These cages reminded me rather of giant Litter baskets set on their sides. There was something not quite right about them- not enough security for the animals perhaps?
