    Douglas Fairbanks & Mary Pickford's Deco miniature golf

    Opening night, August 29, 1930, at Mary Pickford's Wilshire Links with Mary and Douglas Fairbanks on hand. The Wilshire Links was a miniature golf course once located on the corner of Wilshire Blvd and La Cienega. Bizarre Los Angeles.

    Par-King Golf Location: Lincolnshire, IL. Billing itself as "the world's most unusual miniature golf," the Par-King course in Lincolnshire, IL. isn't exactly shy. But they might well be right. With eclectic, bizarre hole designs that incorporate roller-coasters, conveyor belts, roulette wheels, and landmarks including the Sears Tower and Mount Rushmore, it's a wild ride.

    No offence to the good people at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, who currently occupy this building, but I wish they’d move out and restore the Hollywood Theater on Hollywood Blvd to its former neon glory. This is how it looked in 1938.
