Two Views of Fantasyland

Today's post shows two unique views of Fantasyland. The first is of the photographic icon the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship restaurant. The uniqueness of the view is of the intricately carved stern of the boat with the famous Mermaid logo.

The second view is a you are there on King Arthur's Carrousel.

THANKS! Rare and incredible view of the Pirate Ship, taken from the moving Skyway I would guess. Amazing woodwork on the back (sorry, Stern) of the ship, you’d think they were actually going to sail it!

NICE shot of the Casey Jones Jr. R.R. sign; can you read what it says under it? (__ the train?) I love this sign! I don’t think I have seen it before, not from this angle at least!

Those kids on the Carrousel could smile a little more, there at Disneyland for goodness sake!

That's a great view of the back of the ship!

Vintage, I think the smaller sign just says 'To the Trains', though why it would say that on the back I don't know.

Fantastic COS picture. The best detail I have seen.

Early in the 20th century, the Retlaw company made gasoline gages for automobiles. These were gages that mounted directly on the gas tank and were float actuated, turning an arrow on top of the tank to indicate the amount of gasoline in the tank. I have a 1915 Caddy with such a gage and am looking for a good clean "Retlaw" logo so I can restore the face of the gage. Anyone know of whereabouts of such?
