Behind The Storybook, June 1958

Sometimes I have to look at a photo a few times to catch all the wonderful details, like this one shot from the Disneyland Skyway showing the Storybook Land attraction. Zooming into the background, you can see the Fantasyland Viewliner station as well as the Junior Autopia. Yes, back in the day there were multiple Autopias.

I was not aware that there were TWO bridges for the Viewliner with the Santa Fe sign. Or, quite possibly I knew at one time and forgot over the years. I’m sure “Anonymous” will let me know my error.

Here’s the one that spanned over the Motor Boat Cruise attraction:

What an eye, to catch that motorboat cruise in that tiny area. I missed that.

Storybook Canal Boats
Midget Autopia
Junior Autopia
The tracks of Casey Jr.

Even a couple of glass box phone booths by Autopia. That's one busy picture.

I'm enjoying the open country visible beyond the berm, not much of that left now.

Dave, I didn't know that Santa Fe sponsored the Viewliner. Always something new to learn.

Thanks for the pictures and the commentary.
