A Study of Belle Vue
by Frank Rhodes & Brian Selby
You may be surprised to learn that the history of Belle Vue Zoological Gardens goes back to 1836 and at its peak attracted over two million visitors each year. In more recent times many will remember its amusement park, greyhound racing, motorcycle speedway and its famous circus. Frank and Brian remind us of the popularity of this attraction.
