Riverview Amusement Park - Book
Every summer from 1904 to 1967, for 63 years, Riverview—the world’s largest amusement park—opened its gates to millions of people from all walks of life. For three generations, the Schmidt’s family park offered rides, shows, food, and music to men, women, and especially children. Riverview survived depressions, two World Wars, labor disputes, Prohibition, and a World’s Fair that threatened to take a great deal of its business. Riverview Amusement Park tells the story of Riverview’s growth from 22 acres and three rides to 140 acres and more than 100 attractions. 128 pages, hundreds of photos, many never seen before, 6x9, softcover.
