EDITORS COMMENTS
This engraving captures the essence of Surrey Zoological Gardens in Walworth, London during the 19th century. The detailed drawing by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd showcases the grandeur of this historical site, where Edward Cross once kept his menagerie and exhibited an Indian rhinoceros in 1830. The highlight of the gardens was undoubtedly the conservatory, a massive structure measuring 300 feet in circumference and containing over 6,000 square feet of glass. It was considered to be the largest glass building in England at that time, a true marvel of architecture and design. As you gaze upon this enchanting scene, you can almost hear the sounds of exotic animals and see visitors strolling through lush greenery. The tranquil lake adds to the picturesque setting, creating a peaceful oasis amidst bustling London life. This engraving is not just a work of art; it is a window into history, offering us a glimpse into a bygone era when zoological gardens were popular attractions for both entertainment and education. Let your imagination wander back to 1830 as you admire this beautiful print from Fine Art Finder.
