ROTTERDAM. Aandeel Fl.500. black. No 36. Folds with several edge-splits (repaired). Some faint staining. First started by two railroad employees who kept a few animals on a railway property just outside the city of Rotterdam. In 1854, they opened the garden to the public. Due to its imminent success, a zoological society was formed and in 1857, this zoological company was founded with a capital of 300.000 guilders (first shares issued 1858). The zoo was destroyed at the outbreak of WWII but they quickly found new premises at Blijdorp, Rotterdam. Still open today.
