LINCOLN PARK REMEMBERED.

VHS_LincolnParkRemembered[VHS: Spinner Publications – 1999 – 45 mins]. In its 93-year lifespan, Lincoln Park (North Dartmouth, Massachusetts) was so much more than an amusement park. The film opens in 1920, as we board the coaster, carousel, swings and roundabouts. In 1950 we are afforded a tour through the park – from the walkway to the Fun House and the Penny Arcade. Footage from 1954 takes us on boat rides and airplanes, through concessions and games, and finally a heart-stopping ride on the coaster. (Also available on DVD). ANDY SHINE SAYS: A wonderful piece that captures the fun and excitement of this popular park. This held my attention from start to finish. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
