Adventureland Sign Changes
Some time between July (image #1) and December of 1961 (image #2), the marquee over Adventureland lost the canoe-paddles that once hung from it. I can only surmise that they provided too much of a temptation for guests trying to yank on them. Again…only a guess.
This previously unposted shot from April 1958 gives a better look at the paddles and the head that originally graced the Adventureland sign:
A comparison shot of the sign today, which is now stationary. No more rotating creepy head!
