CHESSINGTON ZOO

OPENED 1931

IN SURREY'S LOVELY COUNTRYSIDE

 

 WELCOME TO
CHESSINGTON ZOO
IN OLD POSTCARDS

 

 I first went to Chessington Zoo in the early 1950's.  Those were the days before words like Conservation and Preservation came into being.  Then, when you went to a Zoo or Zoological Gardens to give them their correct name, you went to be entertained, not only by the animals and their antics but also by the other attractions most Zoos had in those days.  Chessington was no different.  Before you even went in, you could view an old London tram which was parked in the Car Park and once inside, apart from the animals there was the Funfair, a steam train which went round the grounds and the Circus.

 

 

 

I can supply any copy of the postcards shown here, size 6 x 4 ", for the amount shown under each card.  I only accept PayPal.  Postage within the UK is 80p for any number of postcards.
