Fond Memories of my early years

By John Dunn

This would be around 11 years of age. We used to visit the Zoo by either walking from Ellesmere Port, on our bikes or as a special treat on the Stoke & Stanney
"Flier"the single decker Crosville bus which stopped outside the first old entrance.
WE loved the Elephant rides in front of the house & going down into the Aquarium.
Can still remember the Lions extension going up & the old pens for the Bears & Polar Bears & the "new" sea Lion Pool. Also still remember the slot & viewing machines where you came out of the Aquarium. Those were the days when you were able to go places without Mum's & Dad's.
