Lakeside Amusement Park in Denver was billed by ambitious investors in 1908 as the “Coney Island of the West.” This photographic artist book explores the timeless architecture, graphics, neon and signage of this once-glorious, world-famous theme park. Visitors today are surrounded by art deco buildings bathed in neon, the original, but tired 1908 carousel, and abandoned rides that are skeletons of their former glory. This book was purchased by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
