Knott's Berry Farm Pitchur Gallery

Two of the souvenir photographs from the Ghost Town "Pitchur Gallery." The first is of a little girl on the bucking bronco. This is the most common pose having seen the same image (and the same stuffed horse) in photographs from the gallery dating from the 1940's to the 1990's. She is a cute little kid in her plaid dress and sweater.

The second image is more unusual. A smaller version of Sad Eyed Joe in his jail. But this time he has company. The souvenir photographs are a staple of amusement parks with Disneyland having their Fun Fotos, Knott's the Pitchur Gallery, The Pike in Long Beach with their jail setting and more.

There is a new blog celebrating Knott's Berry Farm. Check it out.

How did they train that horse to stand in that position for hours at a time?
