I don’t know who came up with the phrase “hodge podge,” but it sure fits what I will be posting for the next few days; I have a few odds and ends slides that I am scanning before I get into my next batch of series posts. So, let’s start cleaning up here! First up is this Jungle Cruise dock view; looks like somebody may have dropped a churro or two in the boat and the crew has to clean it up. Shot #2 is same batch (undated, but 50’s I would guess) with a view from the Mark Twain showing Frontierland. Of course I am including a close-up of the signage. What a geek.

From September 1960, we have this nighttime view:
Last but not least is an exterior shot showing the Flower Mart’s next door neighbor’s window, the Upjohn Pharmacy, July 1965:
