The name Coney Island is synonymous with amusement parks and entertainment from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  This image of the Dreamland park shows Coney Island at its height — all of this pictured would be destroyed in a fire only 6 years later.  Compare the revelers here to those you might see in an amusement park or on a boardwalk today!  There is a great history of Dreamland here.

Coney Island, New York, circa 1905. “In Dreamland.”  8×10 inch glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
