Land Of Oz Continued

More postcards from the Land Of Oz theme park. I think this is a different Dorothy from the first postcards, but still very pretty. The captions from the back of the postcards precede each image.

How do you approach a witch's castle? Very carefully. Dorothy, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow keep a wary watch- every witch way- as they near the Wicked Witch's bailiwick. As for that Cowardly Lion, he cowered- at the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain at Banner Elk, N.C.

Look out- It's the Wicked Witch of the West and she's got a wretched recipe for Evil Stew. The problem is that she can never quite get it right and people laugh at her- at the Land of Oz atop Beech Mountain at Banner Elk, N.C.

It's Magic Moment time in Emerald City- time for Dorothy to vanish in a puff of smoke- and even the dancing mushrooms are happy that she's about to get her heart's desire. It's the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.

The breath-taking panorama of Elk Valley is Dorothy's back yard at the Judy Garland Memorial Overlook. The sculpture of Dorothy with her little dog Toto sets the mood for the fun and fantasy that await visitors to the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.

The Tin Man just rattles around his house, creaking with rust and croaking out his plight to anyone who'll listen. But he plans to get up oily in the morning and go see the Wizard. It's the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.

"POOF" goes the Witches Brew at: LAND OF OZ- Beech Mountain- Banner Elk, North Carolina.

In that first photo, Dorothy looks like she could use a shave.

I remember going to this place as a kid. I absolutely loved it! They even had a house that rocked from side to side while you were walking through. Im 45 now and I still have a postcard thats not shown. Its a picture of Dorothy and The Lion together on top of a huge rock. -Jonathan Bookman
