LOOKING BACK AT BELLE VUE MANCHESTER.

LookingBackAtBelleVue[Book: Robert Nicholls – 1989 – 21x30cm – 78 Pages – Many B&W photos]. Belle Vue (England) is no more; the great zoo and pleasure gardens, so well known to generations, are now consigned to history. Closed down in stages in the years following 1977, the North’s greatest entertainment site is rapidly being obliterated by modern commercial and residential development. Chapter Points: Introduction; The Establishment of Belle Vue Under John Jennison up to 1869; Belle Vue Under the Jennison Family 1869-1925; Belle Vue (Manchester) Ltd. 1925-1956; Belle Vue Under Sir Leslie Joseph and Charles Forte 1956-1977; Final Closure of Belle Vue and Subsequent Site Development.
