Signage Closeups, 1950s
Upon first inspection, this slide from Frontierland in the 1950’s (probably taken in July, judging by the bunting on the Mark Twain dock) may not garner much excitement; but when I zoomed in on the rustic sign to the left, I thought it was pretty cool how the theme of Frontierland was carried out down to the primitive looking signage. Today, Frontierland is just a tad too slick. Anyone able to narrow down the year on this one?
Slide #3 is from 1955, and shows a sign that I believe the Major asked me for a closeup of early on in my blogging career; this particular slide gives a much clearer shot of what the sign says. I have included the closeup of the sign, but not the Jayne Mansfield wannabe in the painted-on yellow pants.
