Postcard of White City facing Riverside

Here is a postcard sent from Binghamton in 1909 of the White City Amusement Park facing out toward Riverside Drive. The Roller coaster is about where the Alice E. Chatlos Library currently resides. You can see the Fountain that was there a few years later as I posted a few days earlier. The grounds really were transformed from an amusement park to a training school for men and women. Only a year after the postcard was sent the park went bankrupt and John A. Davis purchased it.
