A drove of dinosaurs is making its way south from New York
and will arrive in Florida this week for a five-day stand in
Miami beginning next Wednesday.
The life-sized reproductions of the beasts have been part
of the Sinclair Refining Company's World Fair exhibit and are
now part of a promotional road show that will take them to 40
shopping centers in 18 states during the next nine months.
The Sinclair tour is one of several by major companies to
take advantage of the shopping center as a sort of showcase for
its promotional activities.
Sinclair said it decided on the tour after individuals, schools,
groups and even cities had asked to borrow or to be given one
or all of the animals.
The dinosaurs are being transported in a caravan of nine specially
adapted 40-foot flatbed trailer trucks.
