1907: White City Opening
Trenton Sunday Advertiser, May 19, 1907
It is through articles such as this that we can try to visualize where the various buildings and attractions were located in White City Amusement Park. Other newspaper articles have placed the carousel in the Sewell Avenue end of the park - a right turn after the entrance. The roller coaster, flying swings and the pavilion were located there as shown in available pictures. It is not clear where the carousel could be located in this area. It was reported that the carousel building had large glass windows as seem to appear on the pavilion. In all probability the pavilion housed the carousel. The band stand located on the bluff along the midway most likely sat to the left of the Casino. The other attractions mentioned existed along the midway.
