Marineland 3 _RTP_16 April 14  _ SFW

I ran across these transparencies years ago and I always thought that they were made down at the Gulfarium at Fort Walton Beach Florida.  But after I started looking at them more closely, I saw ” Marineland ” written on one of the life-saving rings around the pool.  After two and two together, I came to the brilliant conclusion that this must be Marine of the Sea or the Pacific.  I personally do not remember any of this and my father never mentioned going, but that does not mean anything.  Here are some more images …

The first image just shows the crowd and pool mainly.  The other three you can see tricks with the porpoises or dolphins, I am not sure which.  I have some more images of Marineland that I might clean-up and post later.  If anyone wants to share their memories of Marineland from the 1950’s, please be my guest.  To think that Seaworld and all of the other parks started from something like this is pretty amazing to me.  Now, if all you saw was a dolphin eating fish out of someone’s mouth, you would be very disappointed.  Thanks for looking and please check back … I have been busy trying create an inventory of images worked up and ready to post.  So I have half a dozen or so posts ready to go, I just have to get around to posting them.  Thanks again for looking … Frank

One more thing, I just created a post over on my blog that I would like you to see.  You can click on it here .  If you find that you have the time and would like to see some interesting photography, just click on the link and it will take you to my personal photo blog.  I have included a link there that will take you to the images.  Once you find one of my images ( you should not have to go more than a few pages back since today is  18 April.  After this date I do not know ).  Once you find one of my images, click on it and the same image will open up only larger.  If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will find the other images that I have upload.  I have all of this written and more on my blog if you are interested.  I do not know if it does any good or not in getting selected by Getty, but as usual, I will take all the help that I can get.  As always, I appreciate all of the views and the comments … Frank
