(Knott's, c.1960s) An exceptionally rare original hand-silkscreened promotional poster for Knott's Berry Farm and Ghost Town. Established as an actual berry stand in the mid-1920s, the Knott family gradually expanded their roadside stall into America's first theme park, adding restaurants, various amusements, and curiosities to attract travelers. The replica ghost town became a big draw, and in the era this poster was created, the Knott's were able to start charging admission to the park. Measuring 36"x24", the poster is in very good condition. It exhibits minor browning and pinpoint markings to the blank margins, a pair of faint 1.75" creases in the background of the central upper third, a 5.25" crease in the bottom left border, handling along the perimeter, and browning to the reverse, which is most prominent in the lower third. This stunning poster is a true artifact of Knott's and theme park history.
