Today's pictures aren't very exciting, but I had to use them sometime.
New Orleans Square Station is important because that's where the water tower is; water is as important to a steam locomotive as fuel. Oh sure, rich people put champagne in their locomotives, but water is good enough for me. Sometimes I'll mix in a little bit of Tang™ orange-flavored drink mix, but that's only for special occasions.
Once upon a time, you could amaze your friends with the news that there was a private club in Disneyland that was only available to a rich (and lucky) clientele. And it serves booze! But these days, everyone seems to know about it. I've loved this tasteful etched glass sign ever since seeing it in Christopher Finch's "The Art of Walt Disney".
There's the old doorway to the club's foyer; Club 33 is apparently going through some significant changes (Does that include the logo? I think I read that somewhere). I wouldn't really care about the changes, except that we ordinary Joes no longer have the Court of Angels to use as a quiet refuge from the crowds. I especially enjoyed it when it was decked out for Christmas.
