Today's "Knott's" offerings are all a bit on the underexposed side, leaving the photos kind of dark. But they're still worth looking at! All three are from October, 1967.
First, a look down "Main Street", with Goldie's house of ill-repute, and a sign indicating the Jail - permanent home to Sad Eye Joe. The Livery Stable at the end of the street serves food that tastes livery. The building to our right has smoke wafting from it... I think that's where the town blacksmith hammered out red-hot horseshoes.
If you walked down toward the Livery Stable in the first photo and looked to your left, you would have seen a view very much like this one. There's the Bird Cage Theater, and the "Candle Kitchen" is to the right.
See, I told you these were dark! You can hardly see this little market that sold jams, jellies, and other products that made perfect souvenirs (what's better than a souvenir you can eat!).
