Aqua Shows were very popular and were a frequent feature in the heydays of the 30s/ 40s /50s.  These were the days just prior and following the black days of World War II.

These “Jewels in the Sun” contributed to the  much needed colourful spectacles that brought sunshine into lives following the grim days of battle.
