Nice. I like those little Arcadia books, they're great history lessons and you can find one for just about everywhere, small hometowns and lots of amusement parks. The photos are in many instances ones we've all seen (if you're a nostalgia buff like me) but there's always "new" never seen before photographs as well.

I've found some at Barnes and Nobles.
