Happy Monday, everyone! To counteract "Monday malaise", I am sharing some fun vintage Instamatic pictures.
This first one is my favorite of the bunch, it's a very nice shot of the Frontierland Shooting Gallery. A Frontierland without guns is like a day without sunshine. Looks like most of the guns are in use, as far as I can tell it's all males. Women are much too civilized! I know that I always enjoyed the challenge of trying to hit those moving targets; and I especially loved the targets that triggered some sort of animation, such a skunks getting ready to spray.
This one was in bad shape, scratched and dirty; I spent a lot of time (too much, maybe) trying to get it into usable shape, and it looks OK, if a little weird. But I can't resist a mid-1960's view of the Autopia (can anybody tell if this is the Fantasyland Autopia or the Tomorrowland version?). Look at all of those cool little cars! It must have been a slow day, with so many miniature autos not in use.
And finally… nothing too exciting, though I am always happy to see Cascade Peak. The Mine Train was just passing by, and I'm sure Mr. X could feel the cool spray of mist on his face. Imagine the roar of the tumbling water, and you're practically there!
