Once a mecca for the elite and world travellers, Coney Island started its slow decline with the opening of the subway in 1920 and the lower income people who swarmed in. The decay was becoming more evident in the period covered by this tape. But the 'Empire of the Nickel' was still the grandest show around.

This second presentation of Coney from 1936 to 1954 is seen by filmmakers from a variety of viewpoints, including extensive colour footage of the amusement park and its rides in the 1950s.

This is another fine collection of vintage footage of the most famous amusement park in the world. Click here for more information. (Information about Volume 1 can be found here).
