Vintage Enamel Souvenir Travel Shield Bracelet Charm spacer type="block" height="1" width="1" Location: FRESNO, CALIFORNIA Scene: ROTARY PLAYLAND ZOO - MONKEY The Pocono Mountains region is a mountainous region of about 2,400 square miles (6,200 kmร‹โ€บ) located in northeastern Pennsylvania. The Pocono Mountains is a popular recreational destination for local and regional visitors. The region has a population of about 300,000, which is growing at a rapid pace, largely attributable to vacationers from the New York City region who are turning vacation homes into permanent residences.[citation needed] The region lacks a major population center, although there are small municipalities which are scattered throughout the area. The Poconos now serves as a commuter community for the Northern New Jersey metropolitan areas, even though the commute often takes as much as 2 hours each way due to distance and traffic. Because the region lacks a population center, it has been difficult to establish transit infrastructure to feed (future) commuter rail and bus lines.

Metal: STERLING SILVER Shipping: I'd be happy to combine shipping if you win more than one charm! spacer type="block" height="1" width="1" ร‚ About Shield Charms: History These sterling silver enamelled travel shield charms were popular with European, British and American travelers in the 1940's, 1950's 1960's, 1970's, and are highly collectible items today. The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece. Some have a vintage patina and some look like they are brand new even if they are over 50 or 60 years old. They are wearable postcards and miniature works of art. Women documented their travels by collecting a souvenir shield charm depicting the town or country coat of arms crest, a scenic picture of the area, castles, a famous landmark (Eiffel Tower), building (White House), person from history (Mozart) or an event (Olympics). These charms were often given to women as gifts from their men or friends who were traveling abroad. ร‚ Playland The idea of Playland located at Roeding Park was the brainchild of the late Dr. Joe Logan. Joe Logan was the president of North Fresno Rotary Club during 1954-55. In the spirit of community service, Dr. Logan conceived the idea of developing a รƒร‚ร‚ล“playlandรƒร‚ร‚ with rides on city property, the profits from which would go to provide funds for additional park facilities in the City of Fresno. A lease was agreed upon with the city and Playland was constructed in record time and was opened to the public on May 30, 1955. Playland was an immediate success and netted profits of 33,000 in the first year of operation. Playland in the past 51 years has been an invaluable piece of the Central Valleyรƒร‚ร‚s heritage. Storyland Fresno Storyland opened to the public May 19, 1962 and immediately captured the hearts of children all across the valley. A park devoted to fantasy and fairy tales was a wonderful addition to Roeding Park. Originally funded by the city of Fresno and Junior League of Fresno, the Fresno Storyland Rotary Playland boards joined forces in April of 1994 when Storyland was near extinction. Rotary Playland donated 100,000 to preserve the Fresno treasure and it has continued to be a place of fantasy and wonder for children today. This year, Rotary Storyland celebrates itรƒร‚ร‚s 45th Anniversary. spacer type="block" height="1" width="1" eCharmony Vintage Enamel Travel Shield Charms Click on any photo to see an enlarged version.
