Steeplechase Park, Coney Island

This iconic image (similar to Mad's Alfred E. Neuman) was seen throughout Coney Island's Steeplechase park from 1897 until it was demolished by Donald trump's father in 1964.

  1. Uncanny resplendence to MAD, wonder if it was intentional.

  2. Yes, but this face pre-dates Mad's Alfred E. Neuman by about 55 years. In fact, the "What, me worry" kid has been around since the late 1890's as well. His true origin is unknown. I'll look for some examples to post.

  3. I love the pictures it brings me too the old days.
