Once thought to have been part of Idora Park, this windmill was a lemonade stand that stood outside of the park. It is now the last remnant of what had been a 17 acre amusement park that bordered Telegraph Avenue. Way back in the day, Idora Park was a destination visited by such luminaries as Jack London, Charlie Chaplin, and Buster Keaton.
According to Wikipedia it was especially known for its Opera House, scenic railway, rollercoasters, and vaudeville shows. Built in 1904, it closed in 1929. Click here for more old photos of Idora. Visit ABC Wednesday for more takes on the letter I.
