What is shared under the heading "History and Vintage" are images of historical figures, newspaper headlines, antique advertisements, vintage gowns, and unusual toys and signage. Most have some heavy historical significance, including the assassination of JFK, the construction of the Statue of Liberty in Paris, and many photographs of Abraham Lincoln, ranging from his youthful beardless days to weathered and worn war portraits.
Of the 108 "pins" uploaded so far, one includes Rock Springs Park; a postcard image which also appears on the dedication page of Images of America: Rock Springs Park. It shows a wedding ceremony held in the park in 1908.
appalachianhistory.net incorrectly describes the wedding as taking place "on the roller coaster track." Closer inspection shows the coaster in the background and the soon-to-be-married couple standing on an arched bridge which spanned the Shoot-the-Chutes Ride. Still, it is nice to see the park get a nod among so many iconic images.
|Here, Leap the Dips replaces the Figure Eight, but the arched bridge still spans the Chutes drop.|
