It’s time for a Vintage Knott’s Berry Farm Ticket. This little ticket was good for one child admission, accompanied by a “paid adult”. Knott’s started charging admission in 1968. This ticket is naturally undated. In 1969 it was 25¢ for a child admission, the 75¢ “value” on this ticket would place it from the early to mid 1970’s. Although this ticket has no expiration date, I bet Knott’s would only give you 75¢ off, not an actual child admission (a $23.99 "value") .
Looks like Hills Bros. Coffee must have sponsored this little ticket, I wonder if it came in a can of coffee? CHECK OUT WHITTLES! I’ve never seen him wear other costumes, or are those his brothers? Whittles was pretty much gone by mid 1976 so these must be from before then.
Here’s a few vintage Knott’s Photo’s. Also undated, but much older than the Hills Bros. ticket. These black & white prints are tiny (just 2” by 3”) and on curled-up paper. I’m guessing by the views that they are “souvenir” photos; you’d think they could be a little larger!
Neat Lake-Island-Bridge shot. Is that the backside of a chicken on the right side of the bridge?
Hey what do you know, it really was a farm!
Our little Chapel by the Lake looking great.
The Old Mill Stone looked like log until I scanned the photo and saw what it was!
