Wally at the Golden Horseshoe, 1956

Today's images from 1956 show a young Wally Boag performing at the Golden Horseshoe saloon. Let's get a closeup of Wally and that beautiful curtain behind him!

The Can-Can girls followed Wally.

I am assuming that Fort Wilderness is the inspiration for the art on this curtain backdrop:

Nice color in today's images. It's hard to believe that most of the talented people behind Disneyland's beginnings are no longer with us. Those were surely the golden days of Walt's little park. Thanks for another wonderful post, Dave.

Way, way back when, my parents would insist we sit through the show.
Used to squirm in my seat thinking about what lie right outside the door, waiting to take my A,B C,D,and E tickets. Would give a lot to see one of the shows now.

Boy, oh boy, I miss having seen Wally Boag in a real-life performance! He was there, for free, year after year and I always walked by with my mind occupied about the Mark Twain or Nature's Wonderland. They really need to get a well-written live comedy and dance show back in there.
