1950's

Wonderful Chester Zoo memories

By Charles Leach

I've been a life member since 1980. These are a few images that were taken by my late father, Gilbert Francis Leach (1916-1982), Upton village pharmacist (1950-1980).

Here is a picture of me with the penguins taken in 1955, me & my mother Constance Leach taken in 1959, me and my mother in front of the zebra house in 1959 and then a picture of me with a giraffe in 1959.
