Westside Park, Muncie
Photographs of Westside Park, a municipal park in Muncie, Indiana, from Cuno Kibele's personal scrapbook, ca. 1910s, not long after the park was created. According to the city's website, the park's "historical roots go back to the development of a terminus for the trolley line during the early 1900's. Situated along the banks of the White River, the terrain slopes toward the river and is covered with many mature trees."
The suspension bridge and water park, featured prominently in the photos, are not extant.
