EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the Surrey Zoological Gardens in Walworth, London, England during the early 19th century. Engraved after a drawing by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd, it offers a glimpse into the rich history of this remarkable establishment. In approximately 1830, Edward Cross managed his menagerie at these gardens and astounded visitors with an exhibition featuring an awe-inspiring Indian rhinoceros. The astonishing price of £800 was paid for this magnificent creature. The focal point of the image is undoubtedly the conservatory - a marvel in its own right. With a circumference spanning 300 feet and boasting over 6,000 square feet of glass panels, it stood as the largest glass building in all of England at that time. This architectural wonder served as a testament to human ingenuity and showcased advancements in both natural science and horticulture. The coloured engraving brings to life not only the grandeur of this zoological haven but also highlights its significance within British history. It serves as a reminder of how our understanding and appreciation for zoology has evolved over time. As we gaze upon this mesmerizing print from Universal Images Group (UIG), we are transported back to an era where exotic animals roamed amidst lush greenery under vast expanses of glass - truly capturing the essence and allure of Surrey Zoological Gardens in all its glory.
