EDGEWATER AMUSEMENT PARK print photo picture photograph for sale. This Detroit EDGEWATER AMUSEMENT PARK sepia toned photo picture print for sale has been made from the professionally restored Original black and white photo/negative. It shows a wide angle view of this historic Detroit amusement park looking down the large slide.
" Detroit Edgewater Park was a 20-acre park at Grand River and Seven Mile Rd on Detroit’s west side, opened in 1927. It quickly became one of Detroit’s most popular recreation spots, particularly during the Depression and World War II when it provided an inexpensive way to have fun and forget one’s worries for a short while.
The park featured popular attractions such as the wooden roller coaster “Wild Beast,” a gigantic 110-foot Ferris Wheel and the “Hall of Mirrors.”
The Park maintained its popularity all throughout the 1950s and 1960s, earning a reputation as one of Detroit’s greatest hangouts. In September 1981, after years of declining revenues and the growth in popularity of rival theme parks Bob-Lo Island and Cedar Point, Edgewater Park welcomed the last visitor through its turnstiles."
This is a quite rare photographic image of this former Detroit Michigan Landmark EDGEWATER AMUSEMENT PARK.
