Disneyland, February 1971, pt. 2



Welcome to Frontierland, pardners, circa 1971! Our photographer took his first Frontierland shot at Fowler’s Harbor, with the Columbia resting up in between journeys. Always one for equal time, I wouldn’t want to leave out the Mark Twain:





Over on Tom Sawyer’s Island, let’s take a look at Tom Sawyer’s Shack, shall we?





Rotating around the Island just a bit, we can see the Old Mill from another angle:

I miss the old Island. When I was a kid, it was adventurous. When I was a teenager, it was romantic. When I was "in my youth", it was picturesque. Now that these old shacks are gone and replaced by a concrete stage, the area is now simply "profitable".

Echo that, Katella Gate.

Thank you, Dave.

Glad you all like these. For some reason, the folks at Imagineering seem to have a rough time creating a "rough" looking Frontierland. Everything is way too polished, whereas back in the 50s, it truly looked rustic.
