"…a holiday weekend is about to become a nightmare of devastation." LOL
Open for a 1979 made-for-TV disaster film shot on location at Ocean View Park in Norfolk, Virginia.Aired on October 19, 1979.
Death of Ocean View Park~1979
A made-for-TV disaster film shot in Norfolk, Virginia at the Ocean View Park.

Clip description on  Youtube:
The demolition of a real-life amusement park in Norfolk, Virginia was excuse enough for made-for-television movie The Death of Ocean View Park. Factual footage of the park’s destruction is blended into a fictional plotline by screenwriters John Furia Jr. and Barry Oringer. Mike Connors, Diana Canova, Perry Lang, Caroline McWilliams and James Stephens are among a group of funfair revellers who attend OceanView Park on the Fourth of July. It isn’t long before Mother Nature puts on a real fireworks display-a devastating hurricane.


August “Cap” Coleman’s tattoo parlour on East Main Street, in Downtown Norfolk, Virginia. At the time, East Main Street was filled with strip clubs and other diversions that catered to the red-blooded sailors stationed in town.  Norfolk banned tattoo parlours in 1950, forcing Coleman to set up shop across the river in Portsmouth.
Now East Main Street is full of gleaming skyscrapers and more “respectable” businesses. Coleman, who died in 1973, was considered one of the forefathers of modern American tattooing. Norfolk finally lifted the tattoo ban in 2006.

About

Music Lover. Unapologetic Pop Culture Geek. I created this tumblr page because I was really, really bored one evening...

I also like to shoot videos (on camcorder, but mostly on smartphone) of things and moments that intrigue/surprise/amuse me. Spontaneous, quirky real-life vignettes.

I'm a geek when it comes to Virginia history. Some posts and reblogs may reflect that.
