Pic of Weeki Wachee Mermaids c. 1947. It’s a long running and totally kitch-mazing “live” “mermaid” show in Florida. Some history and vintage photos here, video of what it’s evolved into here. What if that was your job? Doing choreographed swimming routines (an patriotic water dance revue) while wearing full-on mermaid tail costume, performing in a giant aquarium for other humans. What are the stresses of that job?
