Does any one remember PEE WEE PLAYLAND it was out their too on Blackstone. Do you have any pictures? When you were on the rides, do you remember the ponys: TONY, PAPPY, SILVER and JOE? I grew up working at that place, the owner's name was ROLAND STACK. He was a good guy and was a sheet-metal worker and build a train out of sheet-metal and a car engine. He started on old 99 by the park and moved to Blackstone.

@Howard. Pee Wee Playland! It was located on the southwest corner of Clinton and Blackstone. Pappy bit me once and I had to go to the emergency room for a tetanus shot!

*Note by admin: Newspaper clipping from 1948 showing "Edda Mussolini" the Trick Donkey. It wasn't "Pappy" but we thought it was appropriate.
