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!
