1979 Closeups, Pt. 3 & Mr. Lincoln
Time to wrap up this 70’s series; first we have a shot of the horse pulling the Horse-Drawn Streetcar as it goes by the Tobacco Shop. Two views of what occurs AFTER the horse goes down Main Street...talk about job security!
At the end of Main Street, our photographer took this exterior view of the Plaza Inn:
The rest of the views in this series show Snow White and some of her Dwarf Entourage:
Yesterday, I had my first opportunity to see the new “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” show—and yes, it was worth the wait. Unlike the previous incarnation that attempted a few cutesie technological tricks (the buzzing fly in your ear), this one stays right on target as a tribute to Lincoln’s fight for freedom for all. The new animatronic is very smooth, and garnered a number of wows from the audience (it was interesting to hear the comments from guests as to whether it was real or not). Just to see him get up out of his chair is pretty damn impressive. Get your booty over to the park and check it out at the Opera House!
