Boy oh boy, I don't know why some of the slides in this bunch from November 1958 are so dark and murky. My thesaurus says that some other synonyms for "murky" would be "gloomy", "gray", "leaden", "dull", "bleak", "sunless", "dreary", and "dismal". Yep, that about covers it!
Maybe the atmosphere was especially full of Dark Matter that day. See, I knew there was an explanation. Normally the Mark Twain is such a cheerful and dazzling sight, but in this case it looks like it is a Steamboat of Doom.
This one almost looks like a construction zone, somehow. At least the golden spires on Cinderella's Castle manage to give off a gleam or two.
The medieval town where Geppetto lives is normally a place full of charm and whimsy, but in this photo one can almost imagine Nosferatu lurking in the shadows.
I wish I could say that this is the last of the murky pictures, but there are more to come!
