Scholarly Saturdays: Encyclopaedia Britannica & Main Street Pt. 6
Today is the end of filmstrip #1, Main Street U.S.A. This particular segment focuses on the Disneyland Railroad. It is a rare occasion that I go to the park without riding one of the trains! It just wouldn’t be right! The C.K. Holliday is pulling into the station in photo #2:
Grumpy Susie is wearing her sour-puss face again; I’ll be she ended up being a pencil-pusher for the Government somewhere.
Here’s the C.K. again, chugging along its route, which at this time still looks fairly undeveloped in comparison to today’s journey. This was also back in the day when guests were closed into the Cattle Cars and were able to actually feel like....well, Cattle!
Susie & Bobby are about to get on one of the RETLAW one passenger cars:
This time around we get to see the E.P. Ripley pulling the passenger cars, sans Cattle!
And finally, the credits. Please talk amongst yourselves!
OK readers...here’s your chance to be heard. Let me know in the comment section which filmstrip you’d like me to feature next: Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, or Adventureland. It’s up to you! See more Encyclopaedia Britannica photos at my website.
