Just happened to feel nostalgic and see if there were web sights for childhood experiences of mine. I found yours and spent quite a bit of time viewing the old photos.
I am now 52, but I remember my mom and dad taking me to Pleasure Island. I seem to remember a pirate (Captain Hook?) and walking over some kind of bridge high above the ground looking down onto him. I remember yelling out the words "Peter Pan." as he looked up at me. I was petrified!
Being from Malden, I also remember the Kiddie Ranch on Route 1, Saugus. I remember they had a fire truck that would visit cities and give kids rides. Do you remember this? Is there any information available about this smaller amusement park?.........
Thanks for bringing back the memories!!!!!!!
