Charles Miles' new park was a big success. Columbusites flocked there and Indianola Park took its place as one of the city's premier attractions.
No year in the life of Indianola Park is better commemorated than 1908.
Almost all of the dozen or so different postcards of Indianola Park are based on photographs taken in 1908.
Additionally, Indianola Park produced a small promotional booklet in 1908. Titled Indianola: the elite summer amusement resort, the booklet featured photographs and descriptions of the park's many attractions.
The publication was probably aimed at businesses, trade groups, clubs, Sunday schools, etc. to persuade them to hold their summer picnics at the park.
