Back in ye olden days, Frontierland had two rides that couldn't handle a lot of people, and they were probably relatively expensive to operate, all things considered. I'm talking about the Conestoga Wagons and the Stagecoaches. Hey, lookie over there! You can see one of each as they trundle along the shores of the Rivers of America. Frontierland still looks pretty raw in '57, but we know that it will be a more convincing "untouched wilderness" in a very short time. Over in the right corner two fellows are apparently planting trees (or burying bodies) on Tom Sawyer Island. (I should add that today's photos might be from 1956, if our photographer mixed pictures from two visits into one bunch).
Here's a different angle looking back toward the shore; I believe that the area where the little Stagecoach is would eventually be the location of Cascade Peak.
