Mr. Thompson was a unique figure In the
amusement world, and It Is to his genius
that 'Coney1 Island la tho 'Coney Island
that It Is. It was Luna Park, the creatlnn
of Frederic Thompson, that changed that
"clty-by-the-eea" from a resort of
rowdies to a place that appealed to the
best people of the land and a resort for
women and children an endless fairyland
for the little folk and. a place of relaxa
tion for the workaday world In general.
This creation of Thompson's won a
world-wide fame. It was copied all over
the United States and found Its way to
England and continental Europe. It was
tha most copied amusement creation the
world ever knew, and It is little wonder
that Its creator should now be rewarded
at a time when he needs It for who Is
there to say he deserves It hot? '
