The purpose of this blog is to share my collection of Knott's memorabila, which mainly consists of printed material. I will occasionally add some photographs, original art, souvenirs and others items that I have collected over the years. Such as the wood type used to make my header, which was used in the Ghost Town Print Shop on the old Washington Press, to print the souvenir newspaper headlines.

Photos of Knott's from the 1974
I'm posting some slides I came across that are from 1974.
This "Welcome to Ghost Town" sign was on the railing overlooking the Pan for Gold and was located just outside the Farm Market.
Chief Red Feather out on Main Street.
Fiddling Charlie and his wife Mamie.
This picture looks me to have been taken about were the crossing from Fiesta Village into the Boardwalk area is today. The cars in the back ground are probably employees cars. When I started working here in 1974 the Employee Parking Lot was the area behind Calico Mine Ride.
The entrance to the John Wayne Theatre.
The holdup of the Stagecoach took place just before the Stage turned to go East along La Palma Ave.
A sign advertising the "Guided Tours" of Independence Hall. And the next picture is of one of the Tour Guides.
