Alpine Gardens

In response to Major Pepperidge's recent post on the Alpine Gardens area, here are a few shots of the souvenir stand that was there from an unknown date until August 24, 1997. I have a receipt from its final day of operation somewhere; I believe I purchased Candy Sours.

I do not have any photos of the actual demolition of the stand, but I do have a thrilling image of the area as dirt!

Ariel's Grotto opened in this location circa December 1997.

Is this were the silly clam shell thing is now? This stand was far better! When do you approximate that it was built? Funny how when they put in Ariel's Grotto I just assumed there was nothing there before! Hey where's the receipt? I’m curious how much those Candy Sours cost in 90’s?

That is an awesome photo of dirt! ;-)
