Another View: White City Park
Photograph courtesy of Suzy Abbott
This is a view looking toward Sewell Avenue. The photographer is standing on the grassy area in front of the Casino Restaurant. The roller coaster is in the background. The large building on the right is the pavilion which housed the carousel. Partially seen on the right is the station for the miniature railroad. The entrance to the Park on McClellan Avenue was located between these two structures. Unfortunately, someone tried to "jazz" up the picture by adding the colors seen. That endeavor makes this interesting picture historically inaccurate since all ofthe buildings in the Park were completely white.
