Old New York and Chicago
The first image shows some of the street characters in Old New York. They look like extra's from The Gangs of New York film. The second image shows the Firehouse seen in Chicago. Chicago's main attraction was the burning of the town. The third image is of the steam boat The Canadian. As you can see the attractions were loosely based upon attractions seen at Disneyland. One of the reasons was that C.V. Wood was one of the main driving forces behind the design of the park.
