River Boat Cargo
Some of the best theming at Disneyland is the boxes and other cargo that sits on the Mark Twain/Columbia dock ready for passage to other places. Now most of the cargo has an inside joke with the names of imagineers, hometowns and other such personal touches. However in the 1960's, the names and places were just jokes. Some of my favorite ones in the photos are Ezra Catch in Fishtown, USA, Tom Cat Pet shop, Sticky Glue Works in Tacky North Dakota and Rattle Snake Oil. In the first shot you can see the construction of New Orleans Square with the construction wall up.
