Pidcock’s Royal Menagerie was for many years one of London’s great attractions. Imagine a three-story building more suited for offices and shops, instead being occupied by a wide assortment of animals such as an Elephant, an Ostrich, and even a two-headed cow! His tokens were used as advertising tickets. A wonderful series to collect!
