When a picture doesn’t necessarily tell a thousand words.

Zoo sign

They say a picture tells a thousand words, but in this case, i highly doubt it.
It just brings one to have many questions spring into one’s mind.

I’m not sure how old this sign actually is.
The place where i took it is 100 years old and judging by the font, i’m thinking it could possibly be 1920-1940’s?
I don’t think it’d be much younger than that.

Why didn’t they want the public going through that gate?
Was there something dangerous on the other side?
Was something illegal going on?

When i looked beyond the gate, there didn’t seem to be much at all, just a heap of overgrown plants and shrubbery.
Once upon a time though, it could have held back so much more….
