A Very Odd Fish
Monstrosities, Exhibitions, Amusement, Observation
Reports on an exhibition on the 'Sea Serpent' at the Cosmorama Rooms in Regent Street. Adds that the exhibition was attended by a sailor who claimed to have seen the monster. However, spectators did not know whether the witness 'was not a more interesting object than the Sea Serpent himself, who looked as though he had been rather overboiled'.
