A rare shot of Story Book Land with no guests in sight. I like the nautical theming on the lamp post.

Next up a view of the aft of the Columbia. I like the camera caught in the photograph.

Next up is a shot of the Moulin Rouge with Goofy as Don Quixote. I like the idea of Goofy playing the man from La Mancha.

Next up a view of the Matterhorn from the hub at the end of the parade.
Last view is a nice shot of Harbor Boulevard with the old gate sign. This is the era that I have strong memories of going to the park.
Last image is a close up of the sign with the Family Anniversary sign on the bottom.

Next up a great image featuring the characters from Sleeping Beauty. This card works well with the background.

Next up is a rocket from one of the swing rides all nice and shiny.
A view of the small Ferris wheel in action. I always like the open Ferris wheels more than the large enclosed rides.
Last image is my favorite of the roller coaster with the entrance shining in neon in the background. The eagles look very nice. The coaster looks like it was a small ride, but still every one is having fun.

Next up are images of two of the ships seen at Colonial Williamsburg. The ships are recreations of the ships that brought settlers to Jamestown.
Last image is of the kid sitting at a pillory. However, it appears he has the wrong body parts in the stockade.

Next up another shot is a pose in Tomorrowland with the Carousel of Progress in the background.
Frontierland is next with a pose on the dock while smoking a cigarette.
Final spot is Adventureland with a shot at the exit of the Enchanted Tiki Room. I love the sign and wonder where it is now?

Then he boarded the train for a ride around the park.
I love these off the shelf carnival rides like the helicopter seen in the background.
Last image is a rare view of the small western themed area at the park. I love the sign for the jail, Poker Flats Jail. Plus check out that stroller.

Today's post is a nice set of two images of the Autopia from January 1957. At this time there was no center guide rail and each car had a true wraparound bumper to reduce damage to the vehicles.

Next up another shot showing the entrance to Main Street. As Mike has mentioned in comments, this is now Main Street Lockers.

The next two images are from behind the Plaza Inn (Red Wagon Inn) kind of where the First Aid building is now located. Looking at the images, it appears this is where the Beagle Boys would hang out in their double wides. I love the last image with the VW bus parked backstage.

In this photograph there are some pencil marks showing a proposed structure.
A view of the gate to Onstage.
