October 1960 Mish-Mash
Racing towards a rollicking good finish, I present to you a batch of miscellaneous shots from my October 1960 grouping. Anybody need a lamp? I shudder to think of one of these ending up in my home. I believe the front alcove is where the current Silhouette Shop is located. Experts feel free to correct if necessary.
Here's one of the Castle. Is any further explanation necessary?
Well, sure there is. If you zoom in, it would appear that the Ticket Booth visible JUUUUUST on the other side is the one that currently sits over by small world now.
See...it was a good thing I played the Memory Game when I was a little kid. It's paying off in spades now.
A Burning Cabin shot...yup...deader than a doornail.
For these two photos, if you look back and forth real quick, it's almost like the Mark Twain is actually moving! Go ahead...try it! I'll wait.
Other than wishing that Grandma here had crossed her legs (wasn't she taught how to sit like a lady?), there's nothing remarkable that I can see to comment on.
The last photo shows a pre-New Orleans Square Rivers of America. The Frontierland Depot was closer to the water at that time and is just visible beyond the trees. Whatever you do, don't take directions from ladies wearing purple hats!
