Today begins a short series of some construction photos and behind-the-scenes photos of Disneyland, 1955. The two today show the huge clay models for the Jungle Cruise African Bull Elephants. Modeled by Chris Mueller, each elephant consisted of about 2.5 tons of clay and stood at 8'6" at the shoulder. Both of these photos were taken in January, 1955 in Burbank.
