Lost in Adventureland

Here's an odd one; the Bekins Van & Storage Horse & Wagon, normally seen in Town Square, appears to be in Adventureland (judging by the rooftops) or someplace backstage that was near Adventureland.

Here's another vintage shot showing where guests normally would see this vehicle:

Strange, I never knew that the Bekins was used for anything other than as a static display.

Wow, that was cool!!!

What Major said! I don't think I've ever seen a photo showing horses attached to it.

The gate between the firehouse and Bekins led the ally behind the main street buildings and came out at the street next to Coke Corner and the arcade. The backstage photo is that ally. It also continued (in the early days) to adventureland. The mule team pulling the wagon in the color photo was only around for a few seasons because they were to independent.

As always, thanks for your first-hand knowledge, Lee!

Very nice, good information. I'm a big fan of backstage pics. I'd give a lot for a first hand tour.

Thank you Dave, and Cox Pilot.
