Pennyland|1928

with one comment

Here is another great photo I found on Shorpy.  A glimpse into 1928 at the Glen Echo amusement park in Montgomery County, Maryland, near Washington.  Stop for a moment and really look at this photo.  Let it take you back to the Twenties, imagine wearing your boater and a suit, or your new dress to the amusement park, because you looked good!  These were the days when a pocket full of change meant you were going to have a great day.  This is certainly a time when coins were used in everyday commerce.  When I look at the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies from the twenties and thirties, you see the wear on them.  These coins were spent, not dumped in a jar because they are a hassle to carry around.  They bought your lunch, filled your tank, and let you have a whole lot of fun in “PENNYLAND!”  Check out other Coinologist archive photo posts here.
