Wonderful World of Ohio
Description: Three slides showing visitors to the Toledo Zoo were taken in July 1968. The first photograph shows a group of visitors feeding goats. A man and child playing with a wagon are in the second photograph, while the third photograph shows zoo staff presenting reptiles to visitors. The slides measure 2" x 2" (5.08 x 5.08 cm). The Toledo Zoological Gardens was created in 1900, when a woodchuck was donated to the Toledo Parks Board. By 1999, the zoo had grown to include the first-ever Hippoquarium and exhibits focusing on the African Savanna and the Kingdom of the Apes. In 1999, the zoo attracted more than a million visitors.
