Hanging With The Boys at Knott's Berry Farm

One of the most photographed locations at Knott's Berry Farm is the characters hanging outside of the Gold Trail Hotel. Handsome Brady and Whiskey Bill have sat at the bench since the late 1940s and greeted visitors. The first black and white snap shot features a young man sharing a smoke.

The next image shows how popular the scene was with guests. I find as many shots of these two as I do of the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland.

I have a picture of my mom sitting on the knee of the character on the left. I'm guessing it's from the late 50's. Is there anything noticeable about the characters or the background that would identify the date?
