Roy E. Disney and Others at the Disney Studio

Taking a little break from the usual Things From the Gate paper collectibles for today to showcase these three interesting images. Roy appears to be showing some investors around the large sound stage where the Horse Drawn Trolley and other Main Street Vehicles were being constructed. First up is Roy and an unknown person in front of a Horse Drawn Trolley.

A boxing champion showing off his moves with a speed bag.

Final image is of the large music box that was being restored for use on Main Street at the Penny Arcade.

All three images are from a set of negatives with no other information.

These are really interesting!

Is that the "Orchestreon" (or whatever it was called)? I think it was recently removed from the Penny Arcade... hopefully just for refurbishment.

That's not a Speed Bag, it is an arcade game designed to measure how hard you can hit and showed the strength of your hit on a scale.

Do you mean Roy O. not Roy E.?

You are correct...I meant Roy O.

And Vaughn I can see that the device is an amusement device that was probably being restored for use in the Penny Arcade.
