  • Knotts Photos - about 1960

    It's been about 5 years since I've been to Knott's. Reading this forum, I think the next time I visit, it will be very different from what I remember. While searching through some old photos, I found these. They were taken about 1960. I hope you enjoy them.


    Is it still there?

    "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

    The Bird Cage Theater is still there, and is used during the Holidays for Christmas plays.

    The Organ that is on the left of the photo has been moved to the right side, and is in front now.

      Organ? That's a Tangley Air Calliope (pronounced kally ope). Many years ago they actually had a genuine steam calliope, which was gone by the early 1950's.From what I've been able to gather, it's old lap seam boiler had what us steam people call a catastrophic failure.
