I have pictures stashed all over the place, not necessarily in scrapbooks and filed under no system at all. Plus, I called my Uncle John about said pictures, and I'm expecting quite a haul when he gets it in gear.
This first picture was taken on the side of Ben Rood's home. Looking through those trees, you can see the structure that contained the upstairs dance hall, a bathhouse, the pinball hall, a snack bar and storage space for rental boats. To the right behind the telephone pole is the edge of the cafeteria/bingo hall building.
By 1972, the kiddie rides were gone, which would have been dead center in the middle had they still been there when this picture was taken. And directly behind that fencing across the street was the edge of the drive-in movie area.

Anyway, when I find more you'll be the first to know.
