Zoological Gardens, Periodicals, Illustration
Observes: 'The Visit to the Zoological Gardens is not just what we expected; still it is attractive'. Reports that the illustrations 'are from the pencil of our "right trustye" friend and excellent artist, Mr. W. H. Brooke, whose horses, coaches, and dogs excite so much mirth among the young friends of the Mirror—for, in truth, Mr. Brooke is an A.M.—an associate of the Mirror, and enables us to jump from Whitehall to Constantine's Arch at Rome, shake hands with the Bears of the Zoological Society, and Peg in the Ring at Abury.'
