Lettered, lower center: "WE ANIMALS really are well-off in London. Take the London Zoo- smart new Elephant House, | brilliant and unconventional new Aviary (not quite finished), classic-of-modern-architecture Penguin | Pool, all in the setting of Nash's Regent's Park. Whipsnade's wide open spaces are high on | Dunstable Downs - just like home but safer and very much more comfortable. Chessington is more | intimate, and caters specially for children. At all three zoos we welcome visitors. They enjoy | themselves. And, of course, they interest and amuse us too… | Ask for a free 'Know Your Animals' leaflet at any London Transport Enquiry Office"
