Here are some delightful views of Dumbo's Flying Elephants, circa 1956. These slides had turned rather pink, but thanks to the miracle of Photoshop, they restored quite nicely!
It's hard not to love this ride, even if you are sensitive to spinning attractions; just looking at it evokes a lot of pleasure.
I cropped this one because we didn't need 30% more empty blue sky. Or did we? Oof, look at the crowds, Jiminy Christmas! In the foreground, Tex reassures us by looking like a state trooper. Could he have been a cast member who just happened to be walking past? Maybe he operated one of the Tom Sawyer Island rafts.
