  • Description

    "If there's one thing that appeals to the youngsters of this mechanical age it is a zoo baby."

    M/Ss of small children petting small farm animals. Three young children stroke a baby elephant. Baby chimps, llamas, chicks and deer are all favourites with the kids. Various shots of the children with young animals. A young girl feeds a gazelle (or similar animal) with a bottle. M/S of a little girl sitting on the ground with lots of chicks running around her. Cute little film.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 697.
