CoxPilot Collection, July 1955
CoxPilot has gone to great lengths to scan these rare images that he shot personally in July 1955. Although some are a little blurry, their rarity and subject matter more than make up for it. First is an image of the Ticket Area, showing Passenger Cars at the Main Street Train Station. Moving into the park in Town Square, we have a nice shot of Main Street, taken from the steps of the MS Train Station.
Here’s one of CoxPilot, in front of the MS Cinema, back when they used to show silent movies (Mabel Normand’s in this photo).
Taking the Horse-Drawn Trolley down Main Street, we end up at the Plaza Apartments:
And at the end of Main Street stands Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, complete with white swans.
Naturally, we go to Adventureland and board the Jungle Cruise next:
In Frontierland, we have 2 of the Mark Twain:
An overview of Fantasyland:
Welcome to Tomorrowland!
LOVE this image of the Clock of the World:
Final image for this set is the TWA Moonliner:
A HUUUUUUGE thanks to CoxPilot for allowing us to see photos from his personal collection!
