Knott's Map Guides 1970 & 1973

First, this Knott’s Berry Farm “Map of the Grounds” is not dated, based on the attractions and ticket book price, I will put it as 1970. If someone knows the actual year, please comment.

The Cover with Whittles the Prospector, please hide all small children!

The back of this guy is fading away!

Here is a high-res scan of the Map, its’ 8 ½” by 11”

Now here is a map from the "Funtastic Summer 1973". This one is huge at 11” by 17” (scanned at high-res for your enjoyment!) It’s fun to compare this map with the 1970 one from above. Already a lot of changes, MANY more changes in the years to follow. What? The Brady Bunch Kids! "It's a Sunshine Day"

Here is the front, side and back of the 1973 Guide Map. Whittles has mule now and appears to be reading the map with us!

And here his the back part before you fully open the map.

I enjoy most of your posts, but the maps are outstanding. By comparing different years, we can see when various attractions and shops appear and disappear. Thanks!
