Well, posting the Freedomland posters got me thinking. I haven't close to enough wall space left to hang them so why not offer them to some Freedomland nut?

I'm certainly in no rush to sell 'em but if the right person was interested, they might be in better hands. Of course, they aren't cheap but when compared to Disneyland posters, the seven are a steal...especially since I believe these to be much more rare. Also, it would be a sin against humanity to break them up.

Anyhow, here's the link if anyone want's to double-check the lint in their pockets....

There's a bunch of other rare crap that might be of interest to visitors of this blog in my other auctions.

Now's the time to cash in yer kid's college fund!

Here's the last poster for all you freedomland fans, you....

Probably the coolest of them all, yet still amazingly, Freedomlandy.

It's of the Braniff Space Ship from Freedomland's interpretation of Tomorrowland. Satellite City.

From the looks of this poster, you'll happily crash your space ship into the San Fransisco Bridge!
And you thought the Rocket Rods were a bad idea!

Well, that's my Freedomland poster contribution to the blogger world. Enjoy!

Here's a couple more for ya.....

Civil War from the fake, New Orleans Square, Freedomland, USA.

And from Freedomland's psudo Main Street , Santa Fe Railroad Depot.

Something about these posters really bring the Freedomland Park alive to me. They represent the whole tone of that park. Not necessarily bad, not necessarily good. Just.....well, a decently soul-less replication of Disneyland done with the best intentions.

Here's a couple more attraction posters from the elusive park in the Bronx.

From Freedomland's New Orleans Square, a rather gloomy looking clown.

I have seven posters. I'm not sure if that means they only did seven posters that happened to cover just these attractions or whether there were many other posters made. There's a couple for Satellite City so that probably means there are more...

From Freedomland's Tomorrowland, an Autopia Car driven by an insect.

Like the secret to how many licks it takes to get to a Tootsie Pop's chocolatey centre, the world may never know.

Hello all! Been a while. Hope things are well with everyone.

I've been busy with work and found that it was too frustrating to keep up an even pace with the blog. So basically, I stopped. I've since received some very nice e-mails from people who occasionally check back. Thanks for the kind

Of course, my interest in all things Disneylandy is stronger than ever. I'll try to stop in from time to time and update.

That said, this post is in regard to Patrick's great postings on STUFF FROM THE PARK about that obscure and practically 'lost' theme park from Bronx, New York, FREEDOMLAND.

Freedomland was a short lived, East Coast answer to Disneyland. Even with the involvement of key Disneyland personel, the park lacked the magical glue that set Disneyland so high above its imitators. The park's short life span ran from 1960 to 1964. Poor attendance, bad weather, and the forthcoming World's Fair in Queens helped Freedomland into its early grave.

Here's a weird piece of original concept art I have for
the "PopityPop" Popcorn Cart
from the LITTLE OLD NEW YORK theme area.

Not as well known or as many enthusiasts as Disneyland, Freedomland does have a rabidly fanatic fanbase...many of which were lucky guests of this lost New York park.

In response to Patrick's post that had some Freedomland signage, I'll post some extremely rare Freedomland Hand-Silkscreened Attraction Posters over the next few days. They cover various attractions from the seven themed areas of the park.

Combination Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and Autopia, the HORSELESS CARRIAGE
attraction was in the LITTLE OLD NEW YORK theme section.

Like most of Freedomland, they are a pale imitation of Disneyland's Attraction Posters. Cheesy as they may be, they have an absolute charm of their own.

Freedomland's answer to Disneyland's SKYWAY in THE OLD SOUTHWEST theme section.

I'm certain these posters are much more rare than even the rarest Disneyland posters. You simply don't see them around.
