The Coney Island Museum
A large painting in the bar area of the Museum
by Marie Roberts
The Wonder Wheel maintained and operated
by the Vouderis family
The Abraham Lincoln horse carved 1909 on the
Centenary of Abraham Lincoln's birth
Bumper cars from several decades, displayed
in the Coney Island Museum
Ephemera from Coney Island's past,
and Mark sketching in the shadow of
the Wonder Wheel
'Wild' style horse heads from the Carousel- not your calm
beasts of burden, but spirited animals, hair flying, and with their tongues out!
We ended the day taking in the Circus Sideshow at the Museum, a recreation of what such events must have been like in the last century. Urban Sketchers thank Marie Roberts for all her work leading us through the history and attractions of this fabled section of the city.
