Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship & Guidebook, Pt. 2
Before getting back to looking at the rest of the 1956 Guidebook, here are two shots of the parrot that was in the cage next to the young lady in yesterday's photo. Thufer - this should answer that question for you!
Back to the Guidebook, we start out today's post with page 7. Main Street, U.S.A. is full of nostalgia and this page gives it to us in full color: a Marching Band, popcorn for the kids, and a horse-drawn streetcar. All in eye-popping color! Note that the Hollywood Maxwell Corset Shop is still selling their wares.
The Train Station and Town Square look pretty fresh in the two photos featured on page 8:
The photos on page 9 are so good that I am going to have to zoom in on two of them. Hope you don't mind!
I sure do miss the Keystone Kops; not only do they add music to Main Street, but they also serve as a tie-in to the Main Street Cinema.
Before the Plaza Inn, there was...The Red Wagon Inn. I wonder if their fried chicken was as legendary.
Last two glimpses for today feature Tomorrowland:
As you can see from the listing, Tomorrowland was still in its infancy, more akin to a vendor fair of exhibits.
