music halls .... Zoos

Glasgow has had lots of zoos, menageries, and music halls.
These include Bostocks Scottish Zoo in Cowcaddens and
Pickards Noahs Ark at the Paopticon in the Trongate.

Id love to find out more about these.

It turns out that "Sir Roger" the big stuffed elephant in the Kelvingrove was a resident at EH Bostocks Scottish Zoo, and toured around scotland with Bostock & Wombwells travelling menagerie.

Does anyone know if there are any photos of this menagerie?...or of Sir Roger when he was alive?
