This photograph comes from the private collection of Laura Daniele. She shares her memories of Melbourne Zoo as a 4 year old girl:
"Whenever I look at this image of myself taken at 4 years of age in 1980 with my mother and older sister, I am reminded of my absolute excitement of those special childhood family outings which included trips to the Royal Melbourne Zoo. This image was taken around the time of my birthday, I am sure I asked to visit the zoo to celebrate the occasion.
"The image is now tinged rose as is my nostalgia of a wonderful childhood. I now also have children of my own and enjoy visiting the zoo with them, and when I do, I can't help but be reminded of this photo."
