Near Fine. No Jacket. 8vo (octavo). Pictorial wrappers. Second Printing. Corners lightly bent and creased; spine tail rubbed; minimal edgewear; interior fresh and clean. An historical journey in full-color postcards celebrating the golden age of Coney Island. The postcards recapture the romance of a long-gone era; the detailed captions evoke the famous parks, shops, restaurants, and other attractions, including Steeplechase, Luna Park and Dreamland. Along the way are documented the building of America's first roller coaster, the invention of the hot dog by Feltman, the great Dreamland fire which reduced the park to rubble and could be seen all the way from Manhattan, and many other long-forgotten bits of Coney Island history and lore.
