Click on these very cool postcards to read the captions. Pic one is a live 500 year old Florida Alligator of the day. Having lived here in Fl. all my life, I can tell you firsthand, that since alligators were put on the endangered species list years ago, these reptiles are everywhere. People near where I live are always losing their pets and some of the big gators are being blamed. I'm fairly certain they are correct in their assumption of who was responsible in the missing pet/pets. This was a huge attraction from the 1915 or so time frame up until the depression when money became too sparce to justify going to an attraction such as this. Now the largest one of these type attractions is located in our nations "oldest city" which is St. Augustine Florida which is 30 miles south of Jacksonville. How about those teeth on the "Pablo Queen" in pic one above??
