Small Pleasures to Be Found at Freedomland

Not only did Freedomland have some exciting rides such as the Tornado and the San Francisco Earthquake, there were many smaller pleasures. One that captivated the photographer were the many characters seen throughout the park. This gentleman from Old New York is keeping the crowd entertained. I believe he is trying to convince the guests to vote for the mayor, or he is surrendering to the Constable.

Next up is a scene from the petting zoo that surrounded the Borden Elsie the Cow Boudoir. I feel sorry for the poor goat who is not receiving any attention. I also like the fabric of the shorts on the girl on the left with cool mid-century style kitties.

I must be missing something. Where's the goat you mention?

In the middle lower part of the picture appears to be a goat...although now that I look at it, it looks like the head of a child.

Then maybe it's a kid. That way you could be right on both counts.

Happy Thanksgiving Matterhorn1959!
