Disneyland 1958 in Living Color, Pt. 1



This was a great batch of large-format transparencies, yielding some very sharp details, circa 1958. The back of the peg-legged pirate is visible aboard the deck of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant.

Moving over to Frontierland, we have a good clear view of the Golden Horseshoe, taken from the deck of the Mark Twain.



Hungry? How about Swift’s Chicken Plantation Restaurant? The restaurant is to the rear of our photographer, as you can see the sign directly in the forefront of this shot.

That Plantation Restaurant photo is sweet! It's hard to visualize that exact spot today, I'm guessing just in front of the POTC tunnel entrance?

What are "large-format transparencies" I have visions of an overhead projector, but that can't be right?

Nice photo's - Thanks!

Great picture of the COS Tuna Boat Dave. I still can't believe the just demolished this icon. SAD!

Along with the Mine Train through Nature, the Pirate Ship (and Skull Rock) are among the things I miss the most. They REALLY need to bring the ship back.

What if dept.: How about adding a restaurant component to the Columbia?
