Anyone in the mood for a Skyway blowout? Let's start with an image from 1956, when the Skyway attraction at Disneyland first began operation. What? No Matterhorn? That's correct. Just a big mound of dirt, which came from where the Castle is. It had to go somewhere to make room for the foundation and the moat. I guess that kind of makes it royal dirt.
The rest of today's images are from August, 1959.
Call me a Peeping Tom if you'd like, but I love looking into the buckets and getting a closer view. You can also see the Richfield Autopia Eagle on the right side of the frame.
This detailed view provides a better look at the Astrojet attraction.
On first glance, this one kind of stinks because of the bar running down the center of the frame.
With a little cropping, it becomes a magnificent overhead view of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship.
Tuna boats for all!
