    There’s that photo of a family… a boy, Mom and Dad. I’m sure the Dad was a very, very, very famous actor. ( I saw an old cowboy movie with him in it.)

    The only actor I recognize is Glenn Ford with the woman and child looking at the model ship.
    I indulged in several of those pastimes and still do.

  6. Glen Ford was that dad staring at the ship with his wife and son. If there were any other celebrities, I didn’t spot them, although the guy with the fiddle looks familiar. Thanks for a fun post. I love the ladies dressed up and wearing hats on the Tilt-a-Whirl.

    The lady in the second car in the roller coaster on the right looks familiar.. The old surfer guy on the right I think is famous as I’ve seen that photo before.

  11. Don’t know about celebrities, but I wonder how you got that picture of me & Milady walking down the sidewalk! πŸ™‚

    I’ve seen the one with the cop and the kid before. Great picture.

    The beach shot has some great cars!

    Also, in the one of the family watching the teevee, notice the picture with frame to the left of the set, obviously so you can slide it in front of the nasty old picture tube when not watching it. That’s a feature that didn’t last.
