Knott's Berry Farm, Corriganville and Unknown Park

The end of the interesting photographs in the group. First off are three snapshots from Knott's Berry Farm. In the first shot, the Stagecoach is being unloaded.

The next two are from the Old MacDonald's farm area. In the first, the goat on the roof (and he was always on the roof) is eating a rare Knott's map. The poor kid is playing tug of war and I have a feeling, the boy will lose.

The final Knott's photo is of the seal pool.

The family also visited Corriganville. This image is of Fort Apache and what I can read from the sign, it was the current home to Rin Tin Tin.

The final shot may be from Harold Warp's Pioneer Village, but may also be another tourist attraction amusement park. I do know it is a nice old Ferris Wheel that actually looks fun to ride.

The goat on the roof is awesome, almost looks like a publicity still! Hey is that a sign for "Henny Penny" the piano playing chicken??? Only 10¢! I remember a piano playing chicken at Knott's from the early '70's, but it cost 25¢ by then.

I usually don't do ferris wheels, but that little one does look fun. Great series, thanks!

The portable steps for the Stagecoach look like miniature versions of the ones used at airports! Love the Corriganville view.

I like how somebody is feeding the goat a piece of paper! Could it be possible that this is not Knott's? The few photos that I've seen of Old MacDonald's Farm don't show that decorative woodwork around the windows and eaves, although I admit it looks very similar!

Seals at Knott's .... that one always threw me for a loop.

Outstanding shots! Always appreciate an extra Corriganville or two.

And that Seal Pool is still there -buried under tons of concrete under the Fiesta Village outdoor dance floor.

I always loved the piano playing chicken, feeding the sea lions, and giving a penny to the organ grinder's monkey. Glad you found those shots!
