Dreamland was one of several amusement parks on Coney Island in the early 1900s. It lasted from 1904 through 1911 when it was destroyed by a fire after a worker accidentally kicked over a bucket of hot pitch.

This incredible vintage photograph was snapped in 1905, during one of the earliest years of the Dreamland park.

For more on the photo, including larger scans and prints, check out its specimen page in the Library of Congress archives.
