Does anyone have any info or memories of a Fort Lauderdale Florida roadside attraction called "Aquaglades"? (enlarged poster found here) I found this great original poster at a junk store recently, and figured I could find something about it online. All I located were two postcards of an alligator wrestler who worked there (which I immediately snagged) and a link to a picture of some Seminole women who were apparently hired for tourists to gawk at (we loved us some native people for photo ops back in the sixties, didn't we?).
I suppose it was just another small roadside attraction that died out when people stopped taking long road trips--but I guess I'll just have to keep looking for personal photos or recollections of the attraction (or best of all, Super 8 movies) to surface online one day.
