Yacht Bar & Matterhorn, 1963


Sorry for the late post today! Here's a nice view of the Yacht Bar with some sort of mountain thingy in the background, I think it's called Mr. Toad's Wild Mountain. I guess I could look it up on the internets, but who cares about some old ride that isn't even there anymore!;-)

This is an especially nice amateur photo, it has a kind of "dreamy" feeling to it (smog?). The skyway is about to vanish into those misty caverns in the side of the mountain, probably to go back in time. It could happen. There's something about the few nicely dressed groups of people walking around that gives this the look of an official promotional photo.

I just love the Yacht Bar posts!!

Does anyone have a pic from 1955 of the same building?

It was known as the Yacht Club back then and was located closer to the autopia.

Thanks Major

What a gorgeous shot. You are right about the dreaminess of the shot. This is one of the main reasons I like slides and snapshots of the park. Thanks for posting and sharing.

Hello all, I'm trying to find a photo of Frontierland, ca, 1963, of the Blacksmith shop. It was right next to the shooting gallery and was a place where trick ropes were sold by a cowboy named Eddie Adamak.

thanks all,

Jimmy Stevens
