Got any old zoo photos? As its 125th anniversary approaches, the Oregon Zoo is seeking help in tracking down and sharing memories from throughout its history — and the older, the better, zoo officials say.
"It's amazing to think about," said Kim Smith, zoo director. "On Nov. 7, 1888, when this community zoo was founded, there were no cars, no planes, no TV, no radio. But there were cameras — the first Kodaks actually came out that same year. We're not expecting to see any pictures quite that old, but we'd love to see what zoo experiences people might have saved on film over the past 125 years."
