Marineland in 3D!



Located in Palos Verdes, Marineland opened in 1954, one year before Disneyland. I believe these genuine FauxD© images are also from July 1955.



Anybody want to see the Humboldt Penguins?



They're from the Western Coast of South America; I can read the sign!



I’m guessing this is some kind of lobby display?



This August 1959 image came with the same batch but remains a mystery. Anyone know what it might be from?



I'm guessing this is the tale of Humpty Dumpty. But where?

Humpty is from Storybook Gardens in London, Ontario. It's surprisingly hard to find photos of him! At some point his eyes were remodeled to large, bulging, and (frankly) grotesque orbs. I guess now he's been replaced with an entirely new figure. There's a Facebook page that shows some photos HERE .

Major - you are awesome! Thanks for clearing this one up for me!

Years ago, a trip to Marineland was actually a trip out into the country from LA. Every time I fly into Orange County the route takes me over the ocean around and by the site. I look out the window and see all the urbanization and still shake my head in disbelief. KS
