Frontierland Indians, 1956

It must have been a chilly day in 1956, because these Indian dancers are huddled around a real campfire. I like this candid shot from the first Indian Village...you can almost believe that they used the tipis as shelter on a windy or drizzly day. A mug of cocoa and a few marshmallows would come in handy.

Did you know that marshmallows were originally made using a mucilaginous extract from the root of the marshmallow plant?

I did know that! They were also eaten often by the ancient Egyptians. Though I do wonder what they paired them with. ;)

Thanks Major for that bit of information.
