Freedomland Slide Collection Part 1

A Christmas present to myself is this nice collection of Freedomland slides. Some very nice images in this selection of slides. First up is the Pepsi Cola Music Hall in the Old Southwest section. The plethora of signs is very nice and the poor popcorn vendor is very lonely.

Next up is a view of what I believe is the Mexican restaurant located in Old Southwest (although it may be the steak house in Old Chicago.) I like the patio and the lovely water feature.

Totsie was the name of one of the tugboats. You could board the attraction in New York City section. It looks like a fun ride although there is not much guest capacity. The boat reminds me of the Keel boat ride at Disneyland.

The last image is all kinds of fun, with the Chicago keystone style police officer, the boy scouts with their white leggings and the lady rushing with a bag of stuff and then the bright yellow structure.

Happy Christmas to all of my loyal readers. Thanks for the support and comments. I hope Santa Claus brought you what you wanted.
