At the Horseshoe, circa 1956

Here are three vintage images from 1956 of Disneyland's Golden Horseshoe Saloon. The first one shows the exterior sign. Interesting to note that the male cast members are named, but not the female, who would have been Betty Taylor at the time (having replaced the original Slue Foot Sue, Judy Marsh).

Next up (and of course in sequential order!) are the GH Can Can Girls!

Final shot from the trio shows tenor Donald Novis and Wally Boag:

Its sobering to see how young Don and Wally look in these shots. A long time passed in a flash. KS

I love that comment about the decor of the Golden Horseshoe and how it was, "brought around the Horn (Cape Horn) in many a Dangerous Voyage."

I also find it interesting that they list all the songs... something we were discussing over at Major Pepperidge's fine site.

Finally, it is also so cool to see that Wally Boag is listed first (reading top to bottom) on the side panels, but is mentioned second (when reading left to right) in the center panel. I wonder if that had anything to do with the old studio contracts of who gets "top billing"? Just wonder'n. That's all.
