I am on a mission to find such a leaflet!

Someone on another forum kindly linked me to this
(I seem to be one of the few people not really aware of this site!)
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.glasgowzoo.co.uk
on the very earliest archive of the site there is a link to a map of the zoo but unfortunately the map itself has not been archived!
The link itself is a tiny little gif map, but its too small to enlarge (I tried).


Over 6.5yrs later and I have finally succeeded in my mission!!

A few days ago I struck gold! my grandpa is currently in hospital so we've been going round to clean his house up ...I've always been a messy pup, apparently hoarding runs in the family lol. But then if it wasn't for his hoardy ways I wouldn't have found this little gem! I was SO EXCITED to find this Anyway, enough with the words!!

Evening times have done a very short article on the zoo, though the 'what it looks like now' photos don't look very recent to me

I was under the impression there was pretty much nothing left apart from a few piles of bricks.

Last time I was up there around a year ago there was a new housing estate on the site and where the gatehouse used to be was a lovely new road with foundations getting poured. Not really had much cause to be up that way for ages.
