Souvenir Friday- Theme Park Pennants
Pennants have been one of the mainstays of amusement and theme park souvenirs since the early 1900s. They have been sold by the millions and decorated many a kids room. At the swap meets I still see stacks for other tourist attractions and always go through the stack to see if there is an amusement park pennant hiding in the there. Disneyland still sells pennants as do other theme parks. Today most of them appear to be like thick paper and very brightly printed, not the cool old felt style with vibrant printing and even on some of them are flocked letters. The true oldies have sewn on letters spelling out the attraction. Here is a nice selection of pennants from mainly Southern California amusement and theme parks, with one very nice Story Land pennant thrown in.
