Chicken of the Sea, July 1955
From July 16, 1955 (one day before opening), the Chicken of the Sea "dignitaries" were picked up in grand style at the LAX airport by a customized car. How’s that for fancy?!? In shot #2, I really like this "artsy" silhouette shot of the ship, showing the COTS Maiden herself.
For Rich at ICanHasPixieDust, here’s some closeups of KAP; I zoomed in on the eye though, and it doesn’t look like KAP inside of it:
For George, here’s the closeup of the Mickey sign, which unfortunately is still unreadable when zoomed in on:
