WEST SEATTLE HISTORY: Luna Park documentarian’s request

That’s West Seattle’s legendary, short-lived and long-gone Luna Park, circa 1910, from the Seattle Municipal Archives. If you have any Luna Park memorabilia/photos, Michael Falcone is hoping you’ll help:

I’m working on a documentary on Luna Park (amusement park 1907-1913) and would like to put out a call for any photographs/materials relating to the park and/or early West Seattle. I will be at the High Point Library Sunday, July 16th from 1-3 pm in the High Point Meeting Room for people to come by with any materials they would like to see included in the documentary.

I will have a laptop, scanner and camera present in case people allow me to copy images at that time. I am working with SW Historical Society in part on this project and seeking a Seattle CityArtists grant with the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.

If you have questions, you can reach Falcone through his website.

    A great project. I have wondered and you, too, have probably wondered about the amazing facilities that were here on the Beach back in the days of “Luna Park”.  I’m not sure we always make “progress”. …..It must have been very exciting to have lived at that time and admire and wonder at all the great “new” things happening here in West Seattle … back then. . …. Looking ahead, I hope we identify and keep the precious aspects of our neighborhood as we grow, as we inveribly we will.

     Yes…it is the root of ws in a lot of ways. Sad to see the new building going up there. But.. the new clowns are moving in and there’s no rollercoaster. Just a raise in the day to day ticket fare
