Castle scaffolding, October 1958

I've seen a number of slides showing Sleeping Beauty's Castle covered in scaffolding. Somewhere I've picked up the idea that this was due to the addition of the "walk through" scenes (those little dioramas featuring highlights from Sleeping Beauty), though why would that require exterior scaffolding? You can't view them anymore...I've heard theories ranging from terrorist concerns to teenage vandals (and the always-problematic lack of wheelchair access).

A few the lower right hand corner you can see a guy who seems to be a driver of one of the Main Street vehicles (which one?). There's a couple walking by, the man is wearing his yellow "Keppy Kap", and the woman is carrying her souvenir hat. Why is that trash can placed right where everyone will take a picture of it? And finally, it's nice to see how neat and tidy the castle looks with it's well-manicured landscaping.

Amazing...I'm beginning to think it's a good thing I didn't have anything to do tonight!
