Too long. Saw The Elephant Man when it came out. And I went to the freak show at Riverview when I was a teen-ager. Gonna pass on this one. Thanks anyway.

I don't remember a freak show at Riverview. But then I was young so maybe my parents kept we away from it.

It was around when I was a kid in the Fifties...I didn't go inside until I was in my late teens...'64 or '65. The park's last season was in 1967.

Remember "The Dip" with the black guys getting dunked and swearing at white greaser punks to piss them off? Royko wrote about it. The NAACP protested.

That closed some time in the early or middle Sixties. But I clearly remember the way those dudes could yank the chains of the honkies.
