Disneyland: In Living Color, 1958 Pt. 2

Today you can pretend you are aboard the Mark Twain (or the Columbia if you prefer), journeying around the Rivers of America in 1958.

Understandably, Castle Rock captured the fancy of this photographer, and he took a second shot as he got closer.

Here’s a detail view of the signage:

Barely recognizable, here is almost the same angle, taken recently:

Meanwhile, on the other side of the ship, we can see the Indian Village and the train passing by:

Come back tomorrow for more images of our trip around the Rivers of America. See more vintage & current Rivers of America photos at my website.

Love the "before and after" as always!

As for Castle Rock's replacement... well, the plants look nice, anyway!

Nice shots of Castle Rock. And what a contrast with the 'Now' shot!

I can still remember taking my kids on teeter totter rock as recently as 1999-2000. It was a fun little spot...
