Notes

This image was used on a site sign (one of 20 signs) for the NZP Centennial 'A Walk Through History' exhibit. It was located in Parking Lot A and the caption read: "Our first pickup. It was a proud day for the National Zoo in 1917 when we purchased this truck - our first motorized vehicle. We used it mainly to pick up and deliver food for the animals. Every day Zoo employees drove to local markets and the fish wharf to buy fresh food."
