Ticket. Good+. Double sided lithographic ticket, approximately 125mm x 85mm in size, no publisher, but probably the ZSL, and no place, but almost certainly London.

A ticket, numbered ‘210’ and dated 1900-1, admitting Miss Juliet Williams “to the gardens, for the purpose of making studies from the Animals, between the hours of 9 & 3 o’clock”. The reverse notes that “this ticket is available only until June 30th 1901. The holder will deposit it with the Gate Keeper on entering, and receive it back from him on quitting the Gardens”.

The ticket holder was probably the painter Juliet Nora Williams (1872-1937), who has several paintings on display in Chelsea Library (mainly of local houses) and one in Haslemere Museum which includes horses
