History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Visit the Zoo with London Transport

We've already seen a series of WPA posters encouraging us to visit the zoo; they were doing the same thing on the other side of the pond, with just as much style! Here are 20s and 30s posters from London Transport for the zoo (and one from 1913!).
