As you say, it didn't work particularly well but such a beast did actually exist. Unsurprisingly, most of them sank but I believe that one or two made it ashore.
In fact they used 'Sherman' tanks, which I think that this is.

Known as DD tanks, most were successful on D-day where very few losses went to the sea. Unfortunately history is tainted by Omaha beach where they were launched too far out (nearly 4 miles) in a sea that was too rough.
Most of the crews were rescued.

Difficult to tell if this was a DD or not, although I cannot see any propellers.

Would be interesting to know where the shot was taken.
