Mermaid's Dry Run



Besides the live mermaids above the water, Disneyland's Submarine Voyage also had a few below the water as well.



From the publicity release that accompanied this photo:

MERMAID'S DRY RUN (SECOND OF FIVE): HER HAIR SWIRLING GENTLY IN THE WATER, THIS ALLURING MERMAID IS MAKING A WET "DRY RUN." JUDGING BY HER GRACEFUL APPEARANCE, SHE WILL PROBABLY PASS HER SWIMMING TEST WITH FLYING COLORS. 2/14/59

Neat pic of the mermaid; I wonder if this one was seen close to the sub?

I do remember the mermaids, but only in the distance...

"I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves

Combing the white hair of the waves blown back

When the wind blows the water white and black.

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea

By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown

Till human voices wake us, and we drown"

JG (with additional dialog by T.S. Eliot)
