oldify photos

While my son was interviewing for a job at a local theme park,
I wandered around outside with my camera.

I remember these buildings back from when I worked there at 16.

I remember them even earlier than that.
Long before there were roller coasters and other thrill rides.

It was a magical storybook village with
Mother Goose and other nursery rhyme characters.

Some of them, like Cinderella's pumpkin ride have remained
but much has been replaced by corporate costumed characters.

It's a different, but more commercial kind of fun now.

It's lost a lot of its charm.
I wonder just how long these cottage facades will last?

(I "oldified" the photos here and
changed the border in Photoshop Elements.)
