Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois. Thursday, December 31st 2009., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph during the morning of New Years Eve, back in 2009.
A dynasty of Chicago area family entertainment had recently came to an end, with the closing of Chicago's long established Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park Illinois on Sunday, September 27th, 2009.
A local crew from D.M.D Demolition Contractors, is viewed removing the neon tubes and incadescent lights from the free standing Kiddieland Amusement Park sign at the corner of North and First Avenues prior to demolition of the amusement park site in upcoming months.
Luckilly, a smal portion of the sign has been salvaged, and is now on display along the north wall of the Melrose Park Public Library at 801 Broadway Street today.
