Frontierland Transportation: Buckboards
Part two of this trilogy tale is about the Buckboards/Carriages from Frontierland. Picture one shows a buckboard and it appears that it might be from a pre-opening event, as the buildings/window area of these Frontierland facades seem to be unfinished. Shot #2 (yup, recycled from a previous post!) shows a true lady in pink and pearls, ready to ride shotgun on a trip through the old west, circa August 1956.
The third photo is our farewell shot for this post; undated but definitely 1950's material. I believe that the Buckboards/Carriages disappeared simultaneously with the Wagons and Stagecoaches. Experts, feel free to chime in!
Today, the only "carriages" you can ride at Disneyland are the kinds that use that crazy gasoline stuff...the ones that putter up and down Main Street. See more vintage & current Frontierland vehicle photos at my regular website.
