More Nature's Wonderland?!? Say it isn't so...

I first saw this image and thought “I don’t need another image of the mine train for Nature’s Wonderland.” Then I looked at my collection and realized I didn’t have any beautifully clear shots like this one from 1956 when the attraction first opened. Drat the completist in me!

I love reading the little signage on Pat Casey’s Last Chance building. I wonder what Clementines Flight was? And just what kind of “Professional Entertainment” was offered there? Could give a whole new meaning to “Last Chance.”

How about the little girl waving for the camera and the too-cool-for-school young man in the dapper monogrammed black hat from the Park? Probably would be worth a pretty penny today. And there’s the cast member at the back of the mine train giving his spiel.

I'm glad you got these. I don't think I've ever seen any pics taken in this location from this angle. That's the rarity of it. Very cool.

So glad you're a completist. :-)

Love that ladder on top of the Casa de Fritos building. In fact, I always loved that little corner of the Park as a kid. Glad you have this to preserve the memory.
