Many years ago, we bought 3 old circa 1920's decals of the Coney Island Steeplechase funny face that was used all over George C. Tilyou's amusement park from the late 1800's till the park closed circa 1960. The decals were bigger than most decals...8 1/2 by 11 inches. We sold two of them but kept the last one all these years because we knew we'd never see another like it. We recently made a print from the original...same size...same colors...on card stock paper. While we don't usually sell reproductions, we thought there might be some old/new Brooklynites, Coney Island fans and/or amusement park devotees who might like this image of the face that promised a good time for all. The history of this face is very interesting...too much to get into here but a good read if you google it. By the way, a similar face named 'Tillie' (preportedly 'adapted' from the Tilyou face) was used at Asbury Park for many years too.
