Summary

"Yesteryear's Wonderlands presents a multimedia experience CD-ROM of enchanting spectacles from the heyday of North American amusement parks. It recreates the sights and sounds of the park with a wide range of visual material, including over one thousand color postcards, short movies, and magazine articles, as well as the piano music that contributed so much to parks' atmosphere of excitement. Between 1900 and 115, amusement parks across North America taught people --"young and old, men and women, white and black--"about new technologies and gave them their first tastes of the urban modernism that would eventually come to dominate the country. Technology today makes it possible for "yesteryear's Wonderlands to integrate fields such as cinema studies, popular culture studies, and cultural and social history, by inviting users to interactively engage with primary historical evidence for themselves. In addition to scholarly essays that aid in making sense of the vast amount of rare material, this package also includes a scrapbook that enables the user to make original, illustrated lectures from the archival material. Screen shots, illustrations.
