Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear which he often saw at London Zoo, and Pooh, a swan they had met while on holiday. If you can believe, the bear cub was purchased from a hunter for only $20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War. He named the bear "Winnie" after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
