Coney Photos on Shorpy

Some great old photos of Coney Island have been put up Shorpy, an interesting blog devoted to old photographs. The newly posted photos include:

Shorpy posted a few good Coney shots earlier in the year too, such as this photo of Orphans going to Luna Park in 1911 (below), which includes a 1911 New York Times article on the outing.
