ABANDONED AMUSEMENTS.

AbandonedAmusementsWest[Book: Michael J. West – 2010 – 25x21cm – 32 Pages – Full colour]. Unique images and vivid descriptions of two defunct amusement parks that were taken long after their doors had closed and the last riders’ rapturous screams had ceased to echo. Lincoln Park (North Dartmouth, Massachusetts) was opened in 1894 by the Union Street Railway Company of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Lincoln Park closed in 1987 and remained abandoned for many years. Rocky Point Park (Warwick, Rhode Island) was a very popular amusement park. Rocky Point Park operated from the late 1840s until 1995. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair.
