Dutra-Cowing compound | Formerly Shankpainter Children’s Zoo
22 Brown Street. [2014, Dunlap]
A resident of the zoo shed in 2014. [Dunlap]
Text last updated on 16 January 2017 | This small shed is, I believe, the last structural survivor of the zoo that Ruth (Watson) Dutra once operated on the property. A love of animals runs through the generations of this family. When I visited in 2014, the shed was being used to shelter a bunch of ducklings, making it easy to conjure the zoo days.
