  • [Pictures] Knott's Berry Farm Ephemera

    Thankfully, my father is as much of a collector of paper goods/enthusiast of theme parks as I am, and so this folder of Knott's paper ephemera found it's way into my hands just today.

    Here are four pieces to get us started, with more to come if it is desired!

    Bird Cage Theater production flyer:



    Foldout Chicken Dinner Restaurant menu:





    General info handout from 1975:





    And a ticket to go visit the Wood-imals on Jungle Island:





    Thanks for looking, and enjoy these! I am told there are boxes up in the attic of Disneyland paper goods, so shall have to hunt for those sometime soon...

        ye gods, now I feel old. That's a great collection and I'm sad to say I remember most of that stuff.

        I'll be looking for more and thanks for sharing.

              That's great for your dad to keep all those items from Knott's. I for one wouldn't mind having a Calico Spice shop in there again.

                Been neglecting this, so here are some new scans!


                Postcard showing some typical Ghost Town characters congregated inside the Saloon


                A view of the card back with illustrations


                A introduction from Walter and Cordelia Knott inside a 1959 brochure/guide.

                Enjoy!

                  Here are a few more pieces, and hopefully still some folks out there interested in this material






                  Typical Knott's townsfolk/'characters' gathered outside Judge Roy Bean's






                  And on back of the steakhouse menu, an advertisement for Ghost Town


                  More regulars outside of the general store.

                  For interested parties, I still have more material not-yet-scanned if there is even slight demand

                    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                            I believe that would be the Cable Car pictured in the later Ghost Town ad: I never saw it with my own eyes, sadly, it just shows up in old material like this.

                              I can never find any info on "Jungle Island". I used to go there all the time when I was a little kid.
