Silent digital video: The Octopus ride in action. Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois. June 2007.
Originally uploaded by Eddie from Chicago
I photographed this unique silent digital video with My old digital camera I used to own, back in June of 2007.
We are at the sight of Chicago's recently closed Kiddieland Amusement Park in near northwest suburban Melrose Park Illinois.
Kiddieland existed in business at the location of Noth and First Avenues in Melrose Park Illinois from 1928 until 2009.
It was a damp evening when I shot this video in June of 2007. Seen here in action, is the park's Octopus ride on the east midway.
Kiddieland closed for good on Sunday, September 27th, 2009.
A Costco store has been erected here in 2010.
