From Flickr: “And the shark has pearly teeth dear…” by National Library of Ireland on The Commons

It is amazing how things have changed, when this photograph was taken by Denis Tynan killing a shark was considered a normal thing to do. Whereas, today, there is a great drive to protect them. The given date is 1955 – but the ladies jumper and slacks do not remind me of the 1950s. When they may have been quite exotic – and even frowned upon!

Photographers: Denis Tynan 1923 – 2010

Collection: Tynan Photographic Collection

Date: c.1955
