Performing dolphins

I stumbled across these rather lovely postcards today, amongst my collection of animal postcards. I was looking for a donkey, but was surprised to see all these on the same theme. All look to date from the late sixties.

I was kind of intrigued what the fascination was? Theres no doubt some of the attraction must date back to 1982 and the release of Orange Juices seminal first album, You Cant hide your Love Forever

Looking online for a few more performing dolphins I found a rather nice site featuring Brian Wyants amazing collection of amusement park postcards. Its all worth exploring but the highlights were the fairy tale theme park sections!
