May 1959 in Living Color, Pt. 6



Today is the last entry into this particular May 1959 series. Our fashionably retro miss is enjoying a trip on the Mark Twain. Aren’t those pants the bee’s knees?!? The next few shots show various forms of transportation around the Rivers of America, starting off with The Columbia, parked in Fowler’s Harbor.



And here’s the best way to work off a Monte Cristo:



Two of the Mark Twain, with the soon-to-be-finished Matterhorn looming in the background.





Last but not least, Bertha Mae:



No, this isn’t Grad Night; it’s a Ceremonial Dance over at the Indian Village. Back in 1959, you didn’t need a computer to be "interactive."



Alas, it’s time to go home. It’s always difficult to leave the happiest place on earth when Main Street looks its most enchanting. Enjoy this farewell shot and all the vintage cars!

A perfect end to a great series! WOW, those pants are cool, are those nautical signs? Where are the remote controls and score keeping units for the "Ceremonial Dance at the Indian Village"???

Thanks Dave, as always, your posts ROCK!!!

This has been a great series Dave.

The photographer took some very nice shots; I wonder if that adorable lady was his wife?
