Time has progressed and it is now November 17, 1954, eight months before opening. You can see grading has really taken place and the Main Street tunnels are being built out of concrete, looking like drainage control channels. I have circled both the right entrance tunnel and also in the background the white house. Caption for the photo is 11/17/54- Development of Adventure Land and Frontier Land. Also, you can see the fifteen foot embankment that runs around the Park.
A nice view of the Carnation Gardens area with the sign and archway entrance. Many a wonderful band played on the stage to the left. This was also a place to get burgers, fries and ice cream, especially the Fantasia ice cream. I miss the quiet of the stage and the 1890's Ice Cream parlor outdoor ambience of the Gardens.
