Early 1950’s Black & White, pt. 4: Chicken of the Sea



A few of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship restaurant. Anyone know what this "free exhibit" was all about?



The parrot that hung out behind the ship in his gilded cage:

There was a Parrot??? Maybe the Parrot WAS the free exhibit? Nice capture of the background in the blurry Polly photo!

I can't make out the prices on the menu, but it looks like there's nothing over $1 !!!

In those days people thought that EVERYTHING took some sort of ticket, so there was a need to label anything that was a walk-through "Free Exhibit." Even the COTS ship was avoided because it was thought to be a ride that cost money.
