We all know about that 'silly old bear' Winnie the Pooh. She was named after Winnipeg and was the inspiration for the beloved stories written by A.A. Milne. She was bought by Captain Harry Coleborn and donated to the London Zoo. What was the zoo's bear habitat called?

When it opened in 1913 it was the first time that members of the public could see nimals in an arctic environment.
In 1999 a party of officers and men from The Fort Garry Horse visited London Zoo and unveiled a plaque describing the connection between Harry Colebourn and Winnie. The plaque was mounted at Mappin Terrace, near the enclosure where Winnie lived for so many years.
A good story of the connection b/w Winnie and the zoo (and nice photos too) can be found here:
