MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Here is a marvelous picture that I found on my most recent internet search for Knott's photos. Good old Saint Nick taking a ride on the Log Ride. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/ocarchives/3096573222, this is a fantastic collection of photos. They have inherited some wonderful historic Knott's stuff from Cedar Fair. I have spent many hours enjoying these photos and would recommend them to anyone that is interested in So Cal history. Thanks and Happy Holidays to the crew at the OC archives!

Glass Blower - Then and Now

A quick Then and Now post on the Glass Blower's shop.




The Glass Blower’s shop from the mid 50’s I believe.




The same building today is now an extension of the general store. As you can see it is still easily identifiable with the only real change being the signage that now adorns the fa├žade.





Here is a shot of the current location of the glass blower in the old “Grist Mill”.
I will feature a Then and Now of the former Grist Mill and new home of the Glass Blower in my next post.
Take care for now, Thanks for readin'
