Fantasyland Pirate Ship, July 1963


Ahoy mateys! Today post is a quickie - - hey, I have a life! Anyway, not much to say about this photo...it's the beautiful Chicken of the Sea pirate ship, with its striking red and black paint. The Skyway glides overhead, and in the background you can see Skull Rock (looking oddly small here...in my memory it dwarfed the ship), and the teacups are off screen to the right, with the colorful lanterns visible. This busy summer image of Fantasyland in its prime is perfect for a not-so-warm saturday!

I like all the activity and color in this shot. Great view of the Pirate Ship which was one of the most photographed icons.

They desperately need to recreate this again in Fantasyland. It's so enchanting!

Interesting.. No experience but perhaps I should share my old Thorpe Park pictures LOL. It's a classic UK Theme Park.
