“Sea Serpents Appear at Old Point Comfort, Va. - And it’s no mystery this time. This huge sea serpent got a shrieking thrill out of vacationists at Old Point Comfort, Va., recently when it reared its head out of the water. But it was only a joke and the idea of Mrs. Richard Conn and Mrs. John Miller Lewis who built it for the edification of practical jokers in the Hampton Roads area. The photo shows Mrs. Lewis riding the serpent.”  July 2, 1934
