Two From Frontierland 1960

Just look at this: It's a sunny, beautiful day in 1960 Frontierland. Grandma and Grandpa have been married for 54 years, and they've worn their sunday best to the park (as people sometimes did back in those days). What better way to capture a precious memory? Only to have it ruined by that other lady, sticking her tongue out like a 9-year old! Why, if I didn't think she could still beat me up, I'd give her a piece of my mind!


You know it, you love it; the F.I.V. or Friendly Indian Village. I'm not sure how friendly it is, since most of the Indians seems to be ignoring us completely, but for now I'll just go with it. That kid standing on the canoe (minus his dog) is much shinier than most people you meet. I admit it, I'm jealous.

what a meanie! she was probably jealous because she didnt have a such a good-lookin' fella who has put up with her for 54 years...and its no wonder!!

love the F.I.V. image...the angle of it reminds me of a miniature. the colors are great, esp the blue sky you can see in the water. its a beauty! ;-)

Nice pair from 1960 - Thanks! I'm thinking tongue lady was just caught at the wrong moment, she's just popped a mint in her mouth (see the package in her hand) of course the mint was to kill the stale smoke from her cigarette!

Hey is that a security guard or a cop behind the old couple?

Funny about the Indian kid... maybe MAPO took "bronze skin tone" a little to literally.
