Re: Photo: Embalmed Whale Carrier

I remember going to see one of these embalmed whales, which was housed in a specially-made semi trailer.  That was in the 1960s in my hometown of Hopkinsville, KY.  It was in the parking lot of a shopping center, next to a small carnival with rides. I don’t recall any odor, but it’s been a while ago…

And the odor.  I guess you'd have to come up with essences of either embalming fluid or decomposing whale to provide in the kit.  Phew!
