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!
