    Ghost Town "Paradise Shooting Gallery" Photo Print (1961). The Paradise Shooting Gallery opened in July 1960. It was the FIRST electronic shooting gallery in the country. It was developed by Italian Immigrant Carlo Giannetti and his assistant Martin Pincus, an electronic genius from Los Angeles. It took them two years to perfect the custom-made electronic guns, targets, and scenery. This is a rare Ghost Town photo of the Shooting Gallery with Walter Knott at the time of its early opening. With most of the Knott's photo archive donated to the Orange County Archives, this is a rare piece of early '60s Ghost Town history. Size 40" x 60". Minor handling and surface wear, with one corner pushed in; Fair condition.
