PALISADES PARK SURF BATHING
- 41.5” x 79”
- C 1955
- From its inception in 1898 as a New Jersey picnic grove designed by a local trolley car company to increase weekend ridership, until it closed its doors on September 12, 1971, Palisades Amusement Park was one of the world's most famous fun centers. It was a carnival wonderland unlike any other, which instilled a life's worth of magical memories to anyone fortunate enough to have passed through her gates. Situated high atop the Palisade cliffs, just south of the George Washington Bridge on its Jersey side, the fantastical destination featured such attractions as the Cyclone roller coaster, the Tunnel of Love, a carousel, a Wild West show and, as promoted in this poster by the flirtatious pluck of this fresh-faced surf bather, the world's largest saltwater wave pool. This two-sheet poster shrewdly ignores every in-house attraction and graciously provides us with as delectable a slice of All-American pie as one could ever hope to come across. It was created by an anonymous artist in the mid 1950's and printed using lithographic plates. The colors are fresh and crisp.This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
