These photographs come from the private collection of Beverley Morling. She shares her memories of Melbourne Zoo as a 5 year old girl:
"My treasured photos from two of my many trips to the Zoo when I was a child.
"The train one is dated 23.6.1940 and the two others are October 1940.
"I was Beverley Green then, and the other two girls in the picture are Patricia and Mary Buick (both now deceased).
"I would have done many miles on that little train as it was my favourite. I well remember Queenie, but was too frightened to ever ride on her. My very favourite were the monkeys, I spent hours watching them."
