1968 Journey Through Storybook Land, Pt. 2



Welcome back to Storybook Land with 1968 narration, part two. We'll pick up our journey from Alice's Old English Village:





ON THE LEFT JUST BEYOND THIS BRIDGE IS THE OLD ENGLISH VILLAGE WHERE ALICE-IN-WONDERLAND LIVES. THERE IS THE MILL BY THE WATER'S EDGE AND BEHIND THAT BIG OAK TREE IS ALICE'S TINY COTTAGE...







AND THERE IN FRONT OF THE TREE IS THE MAIL BOX OF WHITE RABBIT, ESQUIRE. THE LITTLE BURROW BESIDE THE MAIL BOX IS WHERE WHITE RABBIT LIVES, AND IS THE SAME ONE ALICE FELL THROUGH ON HER WAY TO WONDERLAND.

Had to use a contemporary shot for this one:



IN THE CENTER OF OUR CANAL IS LONDON PARK. THIS IS THE PARK PETER PAN, TINKERBELL, JOHN, AND WENDY FLEW OVER ON THEIR WAY TO NEVER-NEVER LAND.



Another contemporary shot to fill in:



STRAIGHT AHEAD IS TOAD HALL FROM THE STORY "WIND IN THE WILLOWS"...



AND DOWN BY THE WATER IN THE STUMP OF THAT OLD TREE IS RATTY'S HOUSE.



RATTY IS THE CARETAKER FOR MR. TOAD'S MANSION. NOW, I'LL TELL YOU A LITTLE SECRET—SEE ALL THOSE CHIMNEYS ON MR. TOAD'S ROOF? BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE'S ONLY ONE FIRE PLACE INSIDE? THINK HOW CONFUSING THAT MUST BE FOR SANTA CLAUSE ON CHRISTMAS EVE!!!

Still much more to come!

I love reading the 1968 narration. It really gives the photos an extra dimension.

Photo #8 of 11 with London Park is awesome! Beautiful colors.

Ratty's house looks just as it should.

I love this so much.
