I like today's first photo, taken aboard the Mark Twain and looking over the heads of a group of ladies at the rail as they watch the settler's cabin burn. Fire! Fire! If you look carefully you can just see the settler's partially-obscured corpse. Life on the frontier was hard, and could be dangerous - not that you'd know it from today's Frontierland. Now the cabin is neat and tidy, with long-johns hanging from the wash line and a horse tethered outside.
The Columbia might not be sailing this day, but you could still go aboard her and go "below decks" to see how a sailor lived in the 19th century.
