I'm using up the last three pictures from a lot of 1975 images. There's the good ol' Log Ride, still one of my favorite attractions at Knott's. Thanks, Bud Hurlbut! Is that a shooting gallery over to the extreme right?
This part of Knott's still looks pretty rustic in these photos, probably due to the stands of eucalyptus trees. I'm so jealous of those folks heading down the flume!
Here's an odd one, showing a tableau of Native Americans (mom, dad, and child). It is based on a painting called "The Night Watch" (see a photo of it on Viewliner's wonderful blog). Is the building behind it the John Wayne Theater? I appreciate the fact that they attempted to make the wall less conspicuous by painting a big mural of a desert scene on it.
