Norman Thompson Collection


Imagine climbing into the attic of a beloved relative, a life-long resident of Oklahoma City, and discovering a treasure trove of photos, mementoes, school and church programs and restaurant menus.

Norman Thompson, a founding member of Retro Metro OKC, has played a leading role in providing materials for the group’s online collections with contributions including photos from Springlake Amusement Park and Rinehart Construction. Browse the collection and one can also find photos of Wedgewood Amusement Park, the demolition of the Belle Isle Power Plant, and rare images of downtown.
