Here's a pair of fun vintage Knott's Berry Farm images!
First up, there's Chief Red Feather (in the lovely sky-blue shirt) posing with a visitor, and armed with an extra feathered headdress just in case. In the background, other less famous Native Americans (they must have worked at Knott's for much less time) are doing there thing too. Is that man with the smiling face (to our right) wearing a bison hat, complete with horns? Maybe he knows Fred Flintstone. This slide was dated "May 27 1956".
Well, readers of this blog have certainly seen plenty of images of the old Gold Mine, where you could "pan out your own gold". In this case, I just get a kick out of the people in this photo, from their clothing to the happy (or intensely interested) expressions on their faces. Maybe they'll strike it rich!
