This week Sepia Saturday is taking everyone to an amusement park or beach. I’m not much of a beach person with all the sand that gets everywhere and my easily sunburnt skin so here are some shots of amusement parks.

Above is the world’s first Ferris Wheel, described in detail in The Devil and the White City. It was made for the World’s Fair in 1893 in Chicago.

Isn’t this stereoscope cool? It’s of Coney Island in New York. Another circa 1910 Coney Island photo shows the Bridge of Laughs.

I had to include the sort of amusement park for little kids that my grandparents would take me to. Kiddieland had simple rides like this little train which where just right for the young. I wish I had some photos of my cousins and siblings at Kiddieland with our grandparents.
