Punch's Free Admission to the Exhibitions of London



Essay, Drollery


Zoological Gardens, Exhibitions, Amusement

    Discusses the Surrey Zoological Gardens. Complains about the difficulty of finding the gardens, but praises the exhibitions of flowers and animals, particularly the 'concert' produced by the animals' noises. Describes a military entertainment at the gardens and concludes that the gardens 'are decidedly the cheapest, and the most varied, entertainment, we cannot say in, but somewhere near London'.
