Let’s face it: In 2015, this tourist attraction wouldn’t be an attraction at all, but a lawsuit waiting to happen. But from 1907-1953, this Los Angeles location earned a small fortune because it was so popular. Basically, it invited visitors to do something that was probably unwise: hang out, play, and eat with alligators. Alligator Farm was started by Francis Earnest and his partner Joe Campbell, and contained almost 1,000 exotic alligators. The farm offered such attractions as watching the alligators being fed with live chickens, perform tricks and wrestle with humans. It sounds absolutely insane, but we’ve got the photos to prove it.
