According to a reliable friend of mine who lives in the area (Hi James), that is the Scenic Railway from White City in Shrewsbury (i.e. Worcester) as listed on RCDB.


Thanks, Mark, for filling in some blanks. I know that there were probably hundreds of parks called White City, but didn't know about Shrewsbury/Worcester being one place. RCDB has little more than the coaster's location and that it's wooden. No dates, etc.

I have another card from the same park, different woodie, must be the Zip. Will be posted here, of course. In the meantime, here's another blast from Mass. past.

Shane you're probably elated to know I don't have anymore Colossus postcards with awful logos...in fact I think that's the only one in my whole collection. I really must change that someday when I can ever get back out to Cali.

^^ I'm always amazed people wore those kinds of clothes to parks in the early 1900's. Then again we saw more than quite a few Japanese people dressed up in the parks in Japan. Girls rockin' stilettos and all!

I have a few more Colossus cards, but none as pretty as this one.

That view of Colossus brings to mind a certain Chris De Burgh song. Sexy!

Don't pay the Ferryman...good one although I was thinking more along the lines of Lady in Red. :lover:

Did anyone notice the spelling of Lightning on restoca's post card?

After seeing this thread, I'm going to search the post card section at the anual antique show really hard for roller coaster/theme park cards!
