Travelling through time from the Chiswick House Menagerie of the 19th century to the present day, see how our relationship to animals has shaped Hounslow and the communities that live and work here. This intriguing collection of stories is told through the memory of local people and research of historical records and archives.
The project features a series of new stories extensively researched and written by Alistair Cartwright, and colourful images and stop motion animations by illustrator Amber Cooper-Davies, both of whom were selected by members of the Hounslow Exhibitions Group, which includes local people, artists and library staff.
