Disneyland, October 1970 Pt. 4



Just like over at the Major’s blog, I unfortunately have to report that with these 2 photos, nothing is going on here. Just 2 standard Columbia and Mark Twain photos. I know...how boring.



To see what the Jungle Cruise looked like in October 1970, head on over to my Jungle Cruise blog. See more vintage & current Rivers of America photos at my regular website. “Nightmare Before Christmas” fans—this Tim Burton classic is now available on Blu-ray, and also features a way cool tour of the Haunted Mansion (NBC version). Available at Amazon.com.

Neat and kinda creepy... Lots of mud and dirt, the Colombia looks like she has run aground! DO you have a year on these? Thanks!

Tim - the date is in the title: October 1970. And yes, it is kind of weird seeing these ships in "mud"; and how about that neat slipcover on the Columbia?!?

My mom had a plastic slipcover on the sofa in 1970. I didn't realize Fingerhut made slipcovers for ships, too. Like Mom, they took it off when company came over.

Wow, you always hear about how shallow the river is, but you can see that it is just about wading depth!

Wow...the Columbia has been shrink wrapped. Maybe they were getting ready to sell it on eBay!
