Early 1950’s Black & White, pt. 2: Transportation

Image quality on these early shots is not always so hot, but what the heck...they're historical, so that pardons all blurriness, scratching, and fading spots, right? Here’s the way the entrance to Frontierland looked when these shots were taken.

Up next are a few shots of the various forms of transportation that guests could enjoy in Frontierland, starting off with the Mark Twain:

Our photographer got a steady hand for this shot of the Bertha Mae Keelboat:

Last one from Frontierland shows the short-lived Conestoga Wagon with its Westward Ho slogan printed on the side. I can't imagine driving across town in one of these, let alone cross-country!

First photo wont load for me :-(

What are those wires on the Bertha Mae? I can't imagine riding in that Wagon even at Disneyland, must have been one bumpy ride!
