HillsidePleasurePark[Book: Norman James Price – 2006 – 22x28cm – 104 Pages – Many colour images]. For more than two decades, Hillside Pleasure Park (Belleville, New Jersey) had it all. It was inexpensive – admission was a dime. Rides were five cents. You could eat yourself through the day for around a dollar-fifty. Shows were free. So were the colour, excitement, music, dancing and conviviality. Belleville was the entertainment centre of the region. Hillside Pleasure Park: 1905-1927.
