We're looking along the shore of Tom Sawyer Island in this early (undated) slide, possibly from around 1958. A raft is about to dock, look at those guys standing right on the very edge of it. Guess maybe that was considered OK in those days? A number of folks are fishing from the dock in the background (I think this is used as a smoking area now). To the left, the grist mill, and the trail up to the treehouse.
OK, nothing special about this picture, it's even a little blurry on one side. But there is one detail I especially love....the kid who was not satisfied with just climbing the treehouse. He has climbed outside the treehouse and is WAY up in the branches. If the treehouse was the highest point in Disneyland back then, this kid has reached a pinnacle that most people would never achieve. If you are a Disney lawyer, you are clutching your chest right now. We salute you, crazy kid!
