More of my favorite postcards - 1950's postcards from Knott's Berry Farm. Knott's Berry Farm - Buena Park, Calif - Showing old time locomotive train, which encircles Farm. Wide eyed tourists, by the thousands, throng here daily. The Ghost Town and Calico Railroad Meeting the Stage Coach --- "As an extra treat during our memorable visit in Ghost Town, we enjoyed a ride on the famous old narrow-gauge Train, formerly noted as the Denver Rio Grande. Talking about excitement - during the trip two hold-up men boarded the train and nearly scared the wits out of the passengers. We also rode in an authentic Stage Coach through the shady grounds surrounding Ghost Town". The Cable Cars - Knott's Berry Farm, Ghost Town, Calif. - Here the visitors can once again ride the famous San Francisco Cable Cars through the parking lots of Knott's Berry Farm.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and a great Holiday Season. And please do what you can to Support Our Troops. This is the time of year when it is always the toughest for our men and women in the military. Especially the ones so far from home.
Here is my favorite Thanksgiving Day picture again.
Taken by me at The Turkey Farm outside Manti, Utah in 1976.
The noise was unbearable!

Freedomland U.S.A. was a short-lived, U.S. history themed amusement park in the Baychester area in the northeastern part of the borough of The Bronx, New York City. Freedomland opened on June 19, 1960. It closed at the end of the 1964 season when it failed to make a profit ~ (Wikipedia).
Editors note: These Freedomland postcards cost 5 cents each at the time and were produced by Hallmark. I love 'em!
