Shots from Moscow Zoo - the largest Soviet and Russian zoo - back from 1920.
Im sure all thos animals became food during the german invasion. L.M.A.O
1920 is the year of soviet invasion (and defeat) on Poland.
Did you want to say Polish invasion in Ukraine?
Did you want to say Polish encroachment on Ukraine?

WHAAT? there is a pig and a bear together! so… the food was ALIVE?
1. Bear is so small that it don’t know how to hunt.
2. Not all bears eat beef. Many eats fish and many are vegetarians. That’s not more than question of habits but nevertheless it’s much safer to meet a fisher-bear than a bear that knows taste of beef.
Pigs and or Hogs are not Cows, therfore pork is not beef.
Yes, wrong word, should be meat.
The title is incorrect. At least some of the photos obviously are not from the 20s.
i agree. the camera in pic 29 looks like a cybershot.
Yep, me too noticed it!
Nice series of photos.
You know there’s only one place where giraffes are trained basketball and the leopard baby has to help the dog puppy in order to win the seesaw game: communist zoos FTW!
There’s only one question left: Где Гена?
I like the ones taken inside the zoo, without bars. Very cute.
And obviously, 1937 (no. 11) isn’t 1920s, is it…
Here is what I found: “Moscow Zoey at 1920″ (http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/1920/sovietzoeywt0.jpg)
Yeah, that’s what I thought, too, but obvisously he was not born yet, right? Those pics are from 20’s, and Gena must have been born…what a…40’s? I guess? (Wow! Is he a war survivor?)
The camera the old gentleman is using in one of the cameras looks very modern; is it a Lomo? According to Wikipedia, Lomo made the first Russian camera in 1930. I am guessing by styles around him late 40’s to early 60’s?
The komodo or monitor lizard will have the time of its life staring up that girl’s skirt.
Looks like a Komodo to me – surely they’re too dangerous to get that close to.
Full of toxins that slowly poison their prey when bitten.

Interesting set of photos. I don’t think all of them are from the 20’s but they are still quite old. Just the exhibits themselves would be interesting, just comparing them to what modern exhibits look like now.
It doesn’t look like they worried too much about safety or putting animals that may not go well together in the same exhibit, or did they let them run loose?
Still very interesting photos. I would love to see photos from other zoos around the world around that time to compare them.
I guess only 2 or 3 pics from 1920th, the other ones are made during 1935-1965
Кто такой Гена?
#30, #31 and #31 were taken before 1917
Гена лучший друг Чебурашки!!
Разве ты не знаешь его?
Но наверно он родился поздний, вот почему он не на фотографиях (как сказал tokio express)
Gena defended soviet motherland against fascist invaders lol
sorry for bad russian, but im still learning the language
Check the signs, they are using old Russian grammar
#8 looks like some kind of turkey eagle?
