Wonderland at Revere Beach
The Wonderland Amusement Park operated from 1906 to 1911 in Revere, Massachusetts, featuring various roller coasters, rides, and exhibits. The park included an incubator baby pavilion According to the Lost Wonderland web site, this was yet another of Martin Couney’s business ventures. The exhibit was shuttered in 1909, probably due to the park’s bankruptcy proceedings, but reopened in 1910 and apparently continued until the entire park closed down in 1911. The incubator pavilion can be seen on many souvenir postcards, so it appears to have been quite popular.
