rocky point amusement park

Above - how we might have spent July 4 in 1906, as advertised in the Providence Journal on July 1 of that year. This celebration went on for several days. We had to look up several of these entertainments to even know what they were - such as the Russian Toboggan, (from our postcard collection), below, and bottom, Wonder World (we’re still not sure what goes on in there).

A happy and safe Independence Day to everyone!
