Dipping Apples

Nowadays I am fairly jaded when it comes to vintage Disneyland images; it takes a lot to get my pulse to rise when I see a batch of slides for sale. Today's featured image was one of those exceptions. An interior shot from a dark ride is very hard to come by. This one hails from November 1959 and shows the Evil Crone dipping an apple into the poison brew in the Snow White dark ride attraction. Looks like the edge of the spell book at left:

This was apparently a popular scene to shoot, as my collection also has in image from April 1959:

and January 1966:

Here's how the scene looks today:

This would be one of those few occasions I adore the upgrade to an attraction for making it look MORE like the original 1937 feature.

This was the scariest ride at Disneyland when I was growing up. My friend and I would squeal and hide our eyes.
