Japanese Village and Deer Park- Doves

Doves Alight on Outstretched Hand Bearing Food

This is a vintage postcard from the old Japanese Village and Deer Park in Buena Park. These doves remind us a a not too long ago time when amusement parks had more that just thrill rides. They offered a glimpse into a world that most never see. Animals and shows that represented various cultures and lands showcased places we don't often have a chance to see. These doves wouldn't be much of a draw for Magic Mountain, and Disneyland never shows their petting zoo in their commercials. But the Japanese Village was all about such things. I wish I was old enough to have experienced it.
