Photo 59-COT-20


Forest Park Auction Mart. This must have been the roller rink mentioned in the comments on photo 23. Listed as "Forest Park" in the 1950 directory but I didn't realize it meant an actual amusement park. Towards the right upper corner is a round spot on the ground. In ODOT aerial 295-3-28 you can see it was a round building, maybe a carousel. There was another large building at the corner and 4 smaller ones. Also a large mysterious "clock" marked out on the ground with markers around the edge.

In the foreground is the drive to the Forest Park Cabins and Trailer park (motel).

South side of Rt 51 south of Reiman Rd. Razed in the late 1980s.
