GOODBYE, CONEY ISLAND, GOODBYE…

GoodbyeConeyIslandGoodbye[Book: Paul Ilyinsky & Dick Perry –­ 1972 – 22x28cm – 120 Pages – Many B&W prints, few colour]. A photographic farewell to an old amusement park. Few institutions could claim a spot so warm in the hearts of so many as Cincinnati’s Coney Island. Established on the banks of the beautiful Ohio River in a forested glade with the unlikely name of California, Ohio, Coney Island provided for Cincinnatians and their neighbours a haven of escape, relaxation, romance, and just plain fun for nearly a century. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
