Had enough Knott’s yet? Me either! Today we’ve got a double dose of vintage Knott’s stuff. There is no date on this “Souvenir Edition” of Ghost Town News; it must be from the early 1950’s based on “coming attractions”.
Neighbor John tells the tale of the Knott’s. This “news” magazine is 34 pages long, come back on bonus Sunday for the entire issue.
How many of these will we see on Sunday?
I might have to get some Fried Chicken…
Although I don’t think we’ll be seeing Elizabeth (Toni) Knott on Sunday, we might see the fire place & stone mill.
Is the Old Hotel really the first building built in Ghost Town?
Is a “before and after” photo even possible at this spot?
California looks barren, not for long!
Here’s a special treat, from March 30, 1945 here's a small (4 page) news letter called “Adventures In Business”
Check out those cars! Do you suppose any of them are blue-tooth enabled?
This is back when it was Knott’s Berry Place. Guest Houses? I like the Ghost Town photo with the “future” rending on the right side.
The war was still on going and you can see it several places on this page. That flag is great, “Free Enterprise” Keep it Flying! Did someone proportional space this on a manual typewriter? That's not easy to do!
