  1. Thank you for keeping this posting available. it was very helpful in my research for a posting about my late Mother’s youth and Coney island summers in the 1940s. If I were alive back then, I think the photo studios with all the different backgrounds and props would have been a favored feature. I’m not one for roller coasters but the ferris wheel and merry-go-round are just my thing.

    Did you notice how it looks like there were minimal safety precautions taken. On some of the rides it does not look like there were safety belts in use.
