Seattle feature: The life and death of Playland

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

From the article:

When Playland closed more than six decades ago, the rush of a 3,000-foot urban roller coaster ride and other amusements went with it. Fun Forest at Seattle Center later offered some of the same attractions. But the defunct theme park could never quite recapture the enchantment of its predecessor before shuttering in 2009.

I just have to point out all of the flannel in the 1940 photo. Some stereotypes...

I see a lot of *matching* flannel in that photo, much of it accompanied by the distinctive patrol belt. I wonder if the jacket is part of the safety patrol uniform.
