Subs & Motor Boats



From June 1967 comes this shot of the George Washington sub, cruising through the Tomorrowland lagoon, getting ready to submerge for an underwater voyage. Shot #2 is from April 1968 and shows dad checking his camera as he returns to dry land.



From June 1960, we have what appears to be an every day normal boring shot of the lagoon, taken from the Submarine Line Queue, but again, as we zoom in, other details begin to emerge.



Are these the leave-behinds of a mermaid who is taking a break? I didn’t know that mermaids wore flip-flops.



Detail 2 shows the Motor Boat Cruise.

That really does look like a collection of stuff that one of the mermaids might have left behind. The purse, especially. What's that long green thing? My theory: an extra-large shoehorn to squeeze them into their costumes!

Great details and nice eye for seeing them. I like the flip flops just sitting on the dock....

Great detective work Dave! Now if we could only locate the missing mermaid...

Keep up the good work. And loved the DHotel pics, please post more if you have them.

Thanks Again---

Great detail too of the Motor Boat Cruise. I haven't seen a lot of shots of that one.
