Grimmy Folklore: Odd pub names (376* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 27 Apr 07

Ruth, you're a genius:

"Hull Zoological Gardens existed between 1840 and 1862 in the Spring Bank area of Hull".

Sadly, the pub, "viewed by many as the best pub in the city", has since been bulldozed.

"Haworth, Adrian Harvey (1766-1833)
English botanist and entomologist whose Lepidoptera Britannica 1803 was the first complete description of several hundred British moths and butterflies. He was also an expert on succulent plants, with much of his work in this area being published in Synopsis plantarum succulentarum 1812.

Haworth was born in Hull. He was initially employed in a law office until, upon completing his articles, he became financially able to support his botanical studies and forays into the world of insects. In 1798, he moved to Chelsea in London and became a member of the Linnaean Society. He returned to Hull 1812 to found the Hull Botanical Gardens."

Sorted! Thanks people.
