More Black and White Publicity Stuff....

Here are a few more examples of vintage publicity stills. First up is this great shot of the Mark Twain, still under construction. Piles of lumber are nearby, and there are a few craftsmen on board. Wonder what that thing is on the bow that resembles an upright piano?

In the distance you can see one of the towers that had a time-lapse camera place at the top...this footage was used in many Disney TV specials. A little bit to the left of that is...Main Street Station? I think I can see it poking above the brush.


Walt is trying his hand at trout fishing on Tom Sawyer Island. Can anybody identify the two gentlemen with him? Walt better catch something, or those guys are gonna get it.

The wooden crate on the bow is a portable tool shed. ~Katella Gate.

Notice there is another tool shed just the other side of the boat. Probably had a table for blue prints too.

Was this area (with the Mark Twain) Fowlers Harbor?

Anonymous, I believe that that is indeed Fowler's Harbor.

That could be anybody, but the man in the middle with the glasses could be Joe Fowler, and the younger guy's posture looks almost like Rolly Crump. Totally a stab in the dark though...

P.S. Love the Rainbow Ridge background.
