I sure wish I had lots more slides from Knott's Berry Farm - my meager collection has nearly been completely scanned. Phooey. BUT... I'm not done yet!
I'll start today's post with this beautiful shot of the Stagecoach (from a slide dated "November 1960", but surely taken months before). For some reason that bridge/overpass that the stage has just crossed is wet, even though the sky looks clear and blue. So... UFOs! I'm not entirely sure where this was taken, does anybody recognize the nondescript structures nearby?
While this photo is not super-exciting, I love the look of the park from the days when eucalyptus trees were everywhere - I can almost smell them!
Meanwhile, as part of what I believe was referred to as "Knott's Lake", you would have seen this "island" (actually connected to the land by narrow walkways) with the "Indian Trading Post", which consisted of a few teepees and a totem pole. The two don't really go together, but hey, they look great!
