The next is a shot of the cute kid in front of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship. For those who love signs (and who does not?), I have placed a close up of the Kodak picture spot sign.
A shot of the exit area from the Fantasyland Skyway. I really like the black embroidered western shirt on the cowboy.
Final image from this set of negatives is of old unfaithful spouting off a jet of steam in Nature's Wonderland. I believe this was taken from the Disneyland and Santa Fe Railroad as you can see the Mine Train track in the photograph.
The next image is of the Red Wagon Inn. For those who have been reading this blog for a while, you all know how much I like the Red Wagon Inn.
This final cracks me up, the little boy in his winter clothes wearing his cub scout cap and pointing the way around Tomorrowland.
I also want to say thank you to all the veterans who have served the United States. Have a safe Memorial Day everyone!
Look out- It's the Wicked Witch of the West and she's got a wretched recipe for Evil Stew. The problem is that she can never quite get it right and people laugh at her- at the Land of Oz atop Beech Mountain at Banner Elk, N.C.
It's Magic Moment time in Emerald City- time for Dorothy to vanish in a puff of smoke- and even the dancing mushrooms are happy that she's about to get her heart's desire. It's the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.
The breath-taking panorama of Elk Valley is Dorothy's back yard at the Judy Garland Memorial Overlook. The sculpture of Dorothy with her little dog Toto sets the mood for the fun and fantasy that await visitors to the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.
The Tin Man just rattles around his house, creaking with rust and croaking out his plight to anyone who'll listen. But he plans to get up oily in the morning and go see the Wizard. It's the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.
"POOF" goes the Witches Brew at: LAND OF OZ- Beech Mountain- Banner Elk, North Carolina.
Imagine riding into one of your dreams in a colorful balloon at the Land of Oz atop Beech Mountain. Just over the rainbow all the friendly munchkins, the cowardly lion, tin man, scarecrow and Dorothy are waiting to capture your hearts.
Is the balloon really safe? Of course! Why would Dorothy and the Lion and the Tin Man all get into it together? Especially just after the Tin Man got his brain. It's the Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C.
An enclosed gondola lift- one of three of its kind in the United States- takes you over the rainbow to the Land of Oz at Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, N.C. (as for the Cowardly Lion, he rides the surrey bus.)
Disneyland also allowed grown ups to indulge themselves, where else would you purchase a sun hat like these? And ride a full size stern wheel river boat?
The second is from the ground with the Flight Circle to the left. Unfortunately that is all I can see of the merchandise stand with the great toys.
The second image is of the Chicken of the Sea pirate ship. This is a view I have not seen before, prior to the addition of skull rock.
The next two show pictures of the organ grinder and monkey. I love the organ grinder's shirt.
Last shot for today shows the crowd forming before a gun fight. My favorite guy is the cool cat in his pumpkin shirt and sunglasses.
If any of you readers out there have an old jacket like the second one (or even the first one), contact me as I would love to own one of them!
