Hamming It Up: 1951

Hamming It Up: 1951

Knott's Berry Farm Buena Park, CA. 1951. My Mom, Dad and Maternal Grandmother in the 'Pitchur Gallery' at Knott’s Berry Farm. During the 50's Knott's was not commercialized as today. Then the most frightening ride was the old passenger train on which actors boarded and staged a train robbery. This had to be discontinued though because of a 'heart attack' by a passenger who sued.

Today the park is more about modern wild amusement rides than a historical replica of the Wild West days. View full size.
