Mark Twain, 8-13-1955

Here's an early one! I apologize for the grainy quality...what can ya do. Frontierland is looking mighty sparse, and there is a crane in the distance (wonder what it's helping to build). The mighty Mark Twain is chugging past Fowler's Harbor...even the harbor buildings seem to be bare, lacking the props and aged appearance that they acquired later.

In addition to the passenger train puffing by, there is an automobile parked near Fowler's Inn. Interestingly, it is the same kind of car that was used by Andrew Jackson!

So that is how Andrew Jackson would make it to the meetings with Davey Crockett!! The crane is for construction of the Disneyland Hotel.

Look, I happen to know that Andrew Jackson used a teleportation device but he had to keep it under wraps so let's just drop it, OK?
