Crescent Park
(Riverside, RI)
(Nautical Chart Background-Block Island)
The "Coney Island of New England" originated in 1886 under the foresight of Charles Boyden. Charles I.D. Looff. Looff was commissioned to build the Carousel that would come to be the cornerstone of the park. In the early 1900's the park was bustling with patrons that were brought from trolleys and steamships from all over New England and New York. the Shore Dinner Hall was built in 1914. and in 1920 added a roller rink and the "Alhambra Ballroom". The Park flourished in the 1950s and 1960s. On the night of September 2, 1969, the Alhambra Ballroom fell victim to a horrible fire. Unfortunally Crescent Park closed in 1979. The Carousel thru valiant efforts of local residents has been saved and is now operated by the Crescent Park Carousel Commission. Take a ride back to Riverside sometime. As soon as you hear the music and smell the popcorn, you will be transported back to memories of Crescent park.



You are bidding for an Crescent Park Refrigerator magnet from an original watercolor painting by the Artist, William B. MacGregor Jr, who is known in the New England area as the Junkyard Artist.

• Vintage scene of a Crescent Park, RI.
• Magnet is approximately 2 1/4” x 3 1/4” in size.
• Acrylic Plastic Refrigerator Magnet

My painting technique incorporates “old skool” mechanical and civil drafting techniques including ruling pens, Leroy, inking the drawing and then completing it using watercolors, acrylics and gouache. Originals and prints of my watercolors are now part of private collections throughout the United States, and foreign countries.
