The Whale That Toured America

I love talking with older people; they have great stories about their experiences in a time we can only imagine.  A good friend of mine told me a story of his youth spent in Fargo, North Dakota.  In the 1930's, when he was about 9 years old, a train came to town and moved two flat cars onto a side rail for exhibition.  You'll NEVER GUESS what they were exhibiting. A whale! The whale was laid out across two flat cars and there were markers identifying physical parts, like the ear.  I cannot imagine what it would take to exhibit a whale, the whale that toured America!  I am so intigued by this story and am researching it for more information, so, check in again for the rest of the story!

Here are some of the whales that we make at All Animal Jewelry. A humpback whale wave ring, a humpback whale pendant, a sperm whale mother and calf pendant, and a sperm whale pendant.
