Beaumaris Zoo OFFICIAL OPENING C'ERMONY. HOBART, Friday. The recently-established Beaumaris Zoo was officially opened by Alderman W. M. Williams this afternoon. The zoo was originally a private collection of animals and birds belonging to Mrs. H. L. Roberts, upon whose death her daughter. Miss Ida Roberts, generously gave the collection to the City Council. The new zoo is situated in the Domain, near Government House, and two lions and about 100 Australian parrots have been added to the collection. Alderman Williams, who performed the opening ceremony, in the absence of the Mayor (Alderman McKenzie), in the course of his remarks, said that the work, when completed, would have cost about £3000. The zoo now contained 100 animals and 220 birds. Cheers for Miss Roberts concluded the ceremony.
