It's only a few days before 1956 turns into 1957 in this wonderful photo of the Plantation House. Folks are enjoying their lunches outdoors, some of them in short sleeves despite the fact that it's December. I really love this relatively close-up shot of this restaurant (taken from the Mark Twain of course)! Lots of folks are checking the Twain out as it chugs past, several of them with cameras. I've mentioned it before, but sailor hats were obviously a fun kid's fad for a few years. Was this the result of some popular TV show, similar to Davy Crockett and the coonskin caps? Or did they sell the sailor hats at the park? There are at least a couple of other souvenir hats visible in this image.
