A warm welcome to George Jennison


George Jennison, grandson of the founder of Belle Vue Zoological Gardens and author of its history, relaxing in the passenger seat on his way to Chetham's this morning.

Thanks to a generous donation by Jean Hill of High Lane, George is now making himself comfortable here at the Library after his short journey, and will be looked after as part of our extensive collection of material related to Belle Vue.

You can read Zoe Willocks's ebook of George Jennison's history of Belle Vue here.
