Underwater Gallery for Aquarium

SHARKS are always intriguing to the curiosity—more so than lions; for you can less frequently get a good look at a shark. A professional shark hunter is now promoting plans for an open-water aquarium with, not tanks, but pens; and floating steel compartments from whose windows thrill seekers may watch the demons of the deep. The idea, as distinguished from its accomplishment, is very old; a medieval picture shows Alexander the Great in a (fabulous) submarine observatory.

    there should be a machine suspened over the tank that would allow a viewer to pop a coin into a slot
    thus dropping a small child or puppy into the pool, there is somthing simular where we go to feed the ducks

    Surely PETA would get upset about that puppy part.

    The Mirage in Vegas has an aquarium like this, although they have dolphins rather than sharks in it. I loved it, I felt like I was standing in the observation nose of the Seaview

    would work as long as sea life was interested in swimming close enough to view. then there’s always the question of what to do during a hurricane?

    During a hurricane? Piss in the water, ofcourse.
