Nostalgic Postcards

Ed Kindle has put together a great collection of old Erie postcards on Flickr. A few of them show Waldameer, like the one here.

As you can see, there once were beautiful flowers marking the entrance to Rainbow gardens, hence the name.

By my count, there are eight more Waldameer postcards in his collection. Here are the links to the rest. Put on some Erie-ish tunes, sit back, and enjoy!

I found and added a few "new" old vintage cards this weekend. Another of the figure 8 and a couple other oldies. Hope you check them out!

I'd love to know the old layout of the park. What's now in the spots that were once the Outdoor Theatre & the Cafe?
