Miss Coney? Come see its roots: all those incandescent electric fun parks (that so often burned out), terrible freak shows, funny bathing clothes and mustaches and the public electrocution of Topsy the elephant in vintage photographs. Also on display: “a charred remnant of a Steeplechase wooden horse,” one of many olde rides that look very fun and very, very unsafe. And fun.
