Black & White, 1956

Throwing in a few short one-day posts before I start another series. This one is probably from 1956, and gives a nice little taste of the early days. Shot #1 is the entrance, with chicken wire still protecting the "landscaping." In #2, we have two Horse-Drawn Streetcars passing each other, and a few guests on Main Street wearing those paper hats. Any of you souvenir fiends know when they stopped selling those?

“More paper hats, and this time, they’re storming the castle.

Very apropriate to have chicken wire outside the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship.

2 Knotts shots to finish out this set:

I love those paper "coolie hats" that so many people are wearing!
