Fish and Reptile Shows in the Early 1950s

This photograph from the August 1954 issue Water Life magazine is from a time when the British Herpetological Society put on displays of reptiles and amphibians at shows organised by the fish fancy. In those days celebrities, like Frankie Howerd, came much cheaper than they do now  to put in an appearance!

Monica Green (1925-2014) who is holding on to the python was Secretary of the BHS for 54 years.
