Details: This poster is of a vintage ad. It shows a hippopotamus. At the top it says Visit the Zoo and at the bottom it says Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Zoo, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the west bank of the Schuylkill River, was the first zoo in the United States. Chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on March 21, 1859, its opening was delayed by the American Civil War until July 1, 1874. The Philadelphia Zoo is one of the premier zoos in the world for breeding animals that have been found difficult to breed in captivity. The zoo also works with many groups around the world to protect the natural habitats of the animals in their care. The zoo is 42 acres (170,000 m2) and is home to more than 1,300 animals, many of which are rare and endangered.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
