Knott's & Calico

"The Night Watch" The beautiful painting is presently hung in the Bottle House in Ghost Town, Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park, California - Postcard circa 1960's.

Chief Red Feather is a Navajo-Sioux Indian who has for many years greeted the guests at Knott's Berry Farm. His striking costume is more Sioux than Navajo. To meet this friendly man will be to better know and appreciate our American Indians - Postcard circa 1960's.

Calico Ghost Town - Four miles West of Yermo, nine miles East of Barstow, California - Rock and Gem Shop. This mining camp was the largest silver producer in Southern California - over $86,000,000 in silver. (This is a restoration project of Knott's Berry Farm) - Postcard circa 1960's.

Are the captions directly from the back of the postcards? I like the one about Chief Red Feather.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering this correctly, but didn't Knott's have three dimensional figures from "The Night Watch" painting located on the hills above Boot Hill? I kind of remember the painting being in the Music Hall next door to the Bottle House in the 1980's. I wonder if it is still there.

The information about the painting hanging in the Bottle House is what is on the back of the postcard. I haven't been to Knotts in many years, so I don't know where it hangs now.

I don't remember the 3D painting above Boot Hill.. but maybe someone else can recall?

Thanks for stopping by Tokyomagic.
