November 1959: In Living Color, Pt. 6

Today we do a little (very little) exploring of Frontierland, beginning with a shot of the gate. Shot #1 also captures another shutterbug who is taking a photo of the sign that tells the tale of the Log Fort. In this detailed closeup, you can also barely see the Wooden Indian on the left.

Looks like Tom Sawyer Island might be closed for business today; it’s a virtual ghost town.

And a detail shot of the raft and supplies:

In this shot, you have a combination of the frontier (The Golden Horseshoe) AND the modern technology of tomorrow (The Moonliner).

Scarf-gal’s husband/lover/partner/secret boyfriend/brother seems to be a little anxious; he can’t wait to get off that bench and check out the Can-Can Girls.

Leaving you in Frontierland for the day, we close with a shot of the Mark Twain; that wrought iron fence shor is purty!

Tomorrow we visit Fantasyland. See more vintage & current Frontierland photos at my regular website.

Great bunch o' slides (I am secretly holding my breath for the Tomorrowland stuff!).

I've always wondered if those red barrels on the rafts were really there for some sort of purpose - were they full of sand to throw on a fire?

True beauties Dave! Yep, also looking forward to Tomorrowland, as always.

Guys - I hate to disappoint you, but you've already seen all the Tomorrowland stuff—Monorail, Subs, Astro Jets, Autopia...sorry!

Major Pepperidge said...

Doh! Ha ha, that's what I get for posting comments when I've had no sleep (literally). I'm loopy!

Major: Your exactly right. Sand was used in the red buckets for oil fires. Obviously, there was plenty of water elsewhere.
