Fowler's Harbor, February 1958
I was immediately taken by this February 1958 image of Fowler's Harbor. Sure, it's not the best angle to see the main structure, but it contains a number of rarely seen details elsewhere in its frame. I am guessing that the wooden slide/supports are in preparation of the Columbia arriving for construction, as it would still be four months before its debut when this photo was taken.
Zooming in to the left, you can see the sign for the Indian Village War Canoes. Anybody care to take a spin? You can also see the tunnel for the Frontierland Depot stop of the Disneyland Railroad.
Amazingly enough, the same tunnel is still around today. NOTE: Daveland reader HBG2 pointed out that the tunnel was moved (approximately 1962) to make room for the Haunted Mansion.
