1955 Construction Series, Pt. 3



These are the last photos from the May 1955 construction batch. The first shows Walt walking in front of the unfinished castle, and the second shows him having a conversation while standing near one of the castle’s spires. Not sure what this guy is telling Walt, but it looks like an excuse to me, and Walt does not seem interested. Just make it happen, buster!



Moving on, we have pics of the Frontierland Gates and also an unfinished Mark Twain, looking a little nekkid without its decorative gingerbread trim.





This last photo shows the map currently at the Main Street Opera house and features the layout of the park on opening day. Although the miniature display at the Opera House has been criticized for some inaccuracies, it’s still a very cool work of art not to be missed.

I really wonder what was going on in the second photo, since there are three women. One with a small child, and one (on the left) possibly holding a baby?

Humm... the fellow talking to Walt looks more like a guest of his visiting with some ladies; we get to see them on some of the other pics!

Great items!

Could that be Admiral Fowler?
