Knott's Berry Farm Visit Including a 3-D View

It has been a while since I have visited Knott's Berry Farm of years ago via slides. The first image shows a nice view of what could be considered one of the main plazas- the Ghost Town Railway and Calico Mine Railway. I really like the overhead view of the scene.

The second image is taken from the top of the Ghost Town Hotel (if I placed the items in the correct orientation) showing the street with the red school house in the background.

Finally here is a single image from a 3-Dimensional stereo view showing a "dead" body being removed by the Ghost Town Undertaker after a gunfight.

And for those who want the whole 3-D view, here are the stereo images.

The3-D view is called a Stereo Realist view and use 35mm film size and special mounts to acheive the stereo view.

And I would be remiss to not wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's day today. Remember to be wearing the green and raise a nice stout (or black and tan) tonight.

Those are all wonderful images of Knott's from an usual vantage point. I love that first shot showing the Calico Mine Train building. I've never notice that row of benches before, where you could relax and just take in the scenery.

Great shots.

It sure was nice going out on that balcony and watching the passing crowd back then. These days you can't go out there anymore - in fact, it seems you can rarely even go upstairs at the old Calico Saloon.
