Chicken of the Sea Bonanza



Just another quickie...my life is nothing but quickies these days. This undated 1950s shot is a unique view taken from the entrance of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant, looking back towards the Fantasyland Skyway Station.

Although the menu is too blurry to read very easily, it is interesting to see this closeup of Captain Hook's hook...



which is still being used today, in the line queue of Peter Pan's Flight:



Just for good measure, here's a 1956 shot featuring the Chicken of the Sea mermaid:

Three vintage 1956 images showing Town Square and Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland. First up is the Fire Department and Bekins Storage.

Curtains are closed; wonder if Walt's in there?



A closeup of the horse-head above Bekins:



Here's the surrey with the fringe on top that you've heard so much about:



Check out those balloons!



The C.K. Holliday is ready for another spin around the Park:



Last one from this batch shows the Horseless Carriage on Main Street:

Temple Tuesday: Teen Temple



For Shirley's 16th birthday, co-star Monty Woolley decided to give her a gag gift. From the publicity blurb:

Monty Woolley presented Shirley Temple with this appropriate volume when she celebrated her 16th birthday anniversary on the set of Vanguard's "I'll Be Seeing You." Monty and Shirley recently appeared together in Selznick's "Since You Went Away."



The gag was on Woolley, though. Will Rogers already did so back in 1935:



Here's another previously posted shot from Shirley's 16th, as she smells some perfume from her stand-in and friend, Mary Lou Isleib:
