    This is the Knott's I remember. Looking north between Grand Ave. and Beach Bl. Today you would be standing in the Thank God It's Friday lobby. The photographer is standing where today is the footing for Ghostrider.
    Is that a cable car stop beneath the parking entrance?

    I have been to Knotts many times and they have one of the largest Ford shows in the country every year. Great picture, can't believe I missed this one.
