Gunfight at the Frontierland Corral, 1956
In this 1956 shot, the nefarious Black Bart is causing trouble again over in Frontierland. The young boy seems to have been startled by the villain (don't you love the cuffs on his jeans?).
Zooming in, we can see the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train, with its warning of dangerous explosives posted above the tunnel.
In this closeup, Mineral Hall is hidden by the trees, but its next door neighbor, the Essay Office, is in clear view. This area is now the Rancho del Zocalo Restaurant. Bart is blurry in the photo, but it almost appears that he has a cig in his other hand.
The impromptu nature of this shot makes it seem so alive. I love it!
