Description

Exotic animals were coveted commodities in nineteenth-century Britain.

Spectators flocked to zoos and menageries to see female lion tamers and hungry hippos.

Helen Cowie examines zoos and travelling menageries in the period 1800-1880, using animal exhibitions to examine issues of class, gender, imperial culture and animal welfare.
