Recalling Yesteryear's Amusement Parks
Chicago-area historian Eddie Kwiatkowski recently led several dozen people on a memory-lane trip to amusement parks of years gone by, at an event hosted by our friends at the Clear-Ridge Historical Society.
Many people know Eddie as the curator of Eddie's Rail Fan Page, a wealth of Southwest Side nostalgia. The Southwest Chicago Post was at the event at the Clearing Branch Library and captured the first 20 minutes or so on video.
