Has anyone got any media to share on Belle Vue, Manchester? As a '50s child with parents working 7 days a week, I used to drag my Grandmother around Belle Vue at least one Saturday a month in the late 50s early 60s. There was also the annual expedition to Chester which then pre Elephant bridge, had a much smaller collection. The Belle Vue collection was kept in poor Victorian style enclosures, but for a small child was a place of wonderment. Great memories of Nicholas the common Hippo for ever begging for food. The march of the King Penguins. A fabulous Parrot collection in (modern for the time) aviaries the length of the Elephant and Giraffe houses. Chethams Manchester library have some good photographs, also in the book "At Home in the Zoo" by Gerald ILES. But for the size of the collection it is limited. So I would love to see any other media. I appreciate there may not be any as we didnt have cameras like now, but thought it worth a shout out.
