Merchandising meccas and other commercial curiosities. Our exhibits range from the early 20th to early 21st centuries.
A view of Knott's Camp Snoopy. Its flora and fauna were strewn with 20,000 ladybugs, which were used as an environmentally-friendly pesticide. Photo from Wikipedia / "Appraiser William Wesen"
A vintage snapshot of Woodstock (the little yellow bird), which adorned the Screaming Yellow Eagle ride. This trademark was part of the park's original "Peanuts" comic strip branding. After a squabble over licensing rights in 2005-2006, all of these images were hastily removed. The entertainment venue was renamed The Park At Mall Of America. Photo from Wikipedia / "53180"
