Sheriff Lucky and Black Bart

Something about Black Bart really gets to me; I love seeing old photos with him creeping through Frontierland. Surprisingly enough, Sheriff Lucky is walking right alongside of him. Lucky must have been going faster as he is a tad blurry. This shot is from October 27, 1956.

This September 2009 photo is the closest in my collection to matching the location of where these two were standing.

See more Daveland vintage & current Disneyland Frontierland photos at my main website.

In the first image, it looks like the Plaza Pavilion roof partially hidden behind the stockade fort and Davy Crockett Arcade shop. Nice shot!

Now wouldn't you rather have Sherriff Woody and Stinky Pete roaming Frontierland?

Wonderful photo… that looks like a different Sheriff Lucky (a bit older) than I think I've seen in your other pics. I love those old characters that used to be seen around the park.

I recently found some 1955 photos of a "riverboat gambler" hanging around the dock near the Mark Twain, I've never seen him before. If I recall correctly, he has an ace or two "hidden" in his hat (I might be mixing up my ne'er-do-wells), but he is definitely different from Black Bart.
