Blast From The Past

After co-leading a group of kayakers at Sebago I stopped into Coney Island to check out a rockabilly festival and walk through Astroland one last time before it closes forever.  And I thought I had travelled back through time or maybe was still a bit groggy from my rooftop BBQ the night before, when I saw this on the boardwalk:

It was there for the Coney Island Dancers, who usually have a couple speakers on sticks.  Apparently they went all out (and all the way back to about 1978 speaker technology!) for Labor Day. The guys who set it up ("Melody One") were very careful, and all the drivers (surprisingly) were working, so it actually sounded pretty good if you could get into the high frequency dispersion and out of a nasty driver overlap spot.
