Keystone Kops on Opening Day

From the vintage newspaper quote that accompanied this photo:

Three year old George Long, lost but not alone, as Keystone Kops Bill Offdenkamp (left) and Elmer Talbert (right) and a wooden cigar store indian, try to find little George's parents among the 35,000 persons who attended the formal opening 7/17 of Walt Disney's $17,000,000 amusement park.

The Keystone Kops no longer roam Main Street U.S.A., but our pal the Wooden Cigar Store Indian still guards over the same territory, as seen in this September 2008 photo:

Note the missing light fixture and wires hanging down on the marquee in the older picture. Talk about "bad show," eh?
