playlandpg3.jpg (26901 bytes)During Playland's final season, we pitted next to the Gascoignes under the well lit canopy outside of the old Spook House.  It was a great pit spot because not only was it well lit & level, most of it was concrete. There was a 55 gallon drum trash barrel nearby, & one evening I went to the barrel to toss some trash in it. Don't have any idea what made me look inside the barrel before I deposited the trash, but much to my pleasant surprise, there was a small stack of postcards with the Roller Coaster on the front side (none of which I can find any more), & also a small stack of the advertising brochures that Dan has provided various views of here. The Park was obviously a big draw, but so was the race track. The pics of the race track on the back page were mostly from when the track was dirt, so they had to be pre-1954. The Packard(?) stunt car pic appears to be after the track was asphalted, so it must be 1954 or after. Notice how packed the stands were. How 'bout that brave flagman??? If anyone reading this was in or knows any of the folks or cars that were in this brochure, yours truly would very much like to hear from you. Who says everything in a trash barrel is trash???-- Howard Koziol.
