August 1959, Pt. 2

Pt. 2 is a step back in time, as we linger in the rustic part of Anaheim known as Frontierland. The Conestoga Wagon has gotten off to a thunderous start in photo #1. Well, maybe not thunderous, but it is moving forward. In shot #2, you can view the dock for Tom Sawyer’s Island, where you can get on a raft and cruise on over to see Tom & Becky. The umbrellas you see on the left are for the Chicken Plantation Restaurant.

Another Ceremonial Dance is entertaining the crowds at the Indian Village:

Last one for today shows the Columbia, ready for another trip around the Rivers of America. The Dixieland Bandstand is still drawing the crowds in near the Silver Banjo BBQ:

Those are some beauties. The first three are all nice. That second one is an unusual angle, and I don't think that the landing for the raft was there for very long. The Indian Dance slide is amazing, look at that crowd!

It's always a little jarring to see how exposed the Skyway was in those days when viewed from Frontierland. Bet they couldn't wait for those trees to grow.
