LIFE Archives: Wild Hearts

18/05/2011 § 1 Comment

Popularized in the 1880s, diving horses were a boardwalk attraction that became a rarity after WWII.  Here, LIFE photographer Peter Stackpole captures one in Atlantic City in 1953.  I can’t find the accompanying article or write-up in the LIFE archives, so I have to believe these weren’t published, leaving us to wonder who these performers were, as we watch them carry the torch for a disappearing trade.
