This photographic montage, akin to the “cabinets of curiosities” of another time, recalls the winter quarters of Parc Angrignon, which for a long time welcomed during the cold season the animals of the Jardin des merveilles (Garden of Wonders), located in Parc La Fontaine. Some images show the forest that gave way to the park in the mid-1950s.
