Today's first classic Instamatic picture is this interesting view of the old Motorboat Cruise dock (sometime in the mid-1960's), sans water. I can only guess that it was empty for routine maintenance. The water appears to be about 3 or 4 feet deep here when full. Is that contraption to the left part of the track that guided the boats? If so, how did the boats get from the docks to the track, and then "hook on"? I don't have any other photos like this, so it was a welcome discovery!
I can't tell if this is the Fantasyland Autopia or the Tomorrowland Autopia, but either way the photo was taken from the Disneyand R.R. as a single turquoise car passed by, with a father and son enjoying the ride. Notice that the steering wheel is on the right... I don't think I flipped the negative by accident, but you never know.
The Painted Desert is beautiful, but unforgiving. You don't want to be caught out there with no H2O, for sure. Thankfully, we have discovered this oasis, with cool water bubbling up from an underground spring!
