1950's Disneyland Gems, Pt. 4

More treasures from this batch of approximately 1957-1958 Disneyland vintage photos, with today's post featuring Adventureland. Love these Oceanic Arts Tiki/Tribal masks! The skull on top of image 2 is a very nice "plus."

The skulls in the park today are a bit more ornate and less white-washed:

One of the first buildings that you see as you enter Adventureland:

Back in the day, it was known as Casa de Huespedes, which means Rooming House/Guest House.

Today, it has no identity.

Last one for today shows the back side of water; a very rare shot for this time period!

I'm enjoying this 1957-1958 Disneyland batch you've been posting and hope there's a part 5. I always loved the Oceanic Arts stuff along the Gateway to Adventureland. At one time I used to pick up trinkets or souvenirs at the Adventureland Bazaar. Not anymore.

Looks like a screw wasn't screwed all the way down in the painted skull. Thanks, Dave.

That screw might have been the cause of death, you never know. I miss the volume of water at Schweitzer Falls, it's considerably scaled back today. Nice to see a pic of it back in it's glory.

The psychedelic skull looks like a prop from "Apocalypse Now".
