Omnibus and Keelboat, June 1958

Here's a nice photo of the good old Omnibus as it circles the hub (Tomorrowland is to our right, see the flagpoles?), and doing a good job of blocking the House of the Future. But that's OK, because we get a pretty good look at the banner that adorns the side, touting the opening of the brand-new "Alice In Wonderland" attraction. It's nice that the Omnibus could accommodate mothers with strollers, see that one on the back platform?


And just for the heck of it, howsabout this nice shot of the Gullywhumper? I've never seen a craft more suited to whumping gullys, and I'll wager that you haven't either. Sure do wish that the Keelboats were still there for a relaxing trip around the river.

Just saw the Gullywhumper on Saturday, still rotting away on the Rivers of America. Really sad.

Disneyland forms of transportation. Always my favorites. Great pics.

Gully what a whumper! Neat seeing the keelboat (called a keel boat cause... well, you oughtta have seen 'em keel over!) and a fairly contemporary (the the keelboat) feeling train chuggin' along behind. :)

What a great time. A delightful attraction like Alice in Wonderland for a new attraction. Gully!
