Today I'm finishing up the last of a small batch of black and white snapshots from the summer of 1960. This time we don't get any Barb or Margie, just our boy Jack.
Jack's wife must have thought that he looked especially fetching in the tropical area behind the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship, because all three photos were taken right there. Some people might guess that Jack was an accountant, or maybe a math teacher, but I think that he was a Systems Analyst. He could run his fingers over a computer's punched-paper card and know what it said!
Notice (to the left of Jack's head) the Mickey Mouse shield from the front of the Fantasyland Theater.
Do you think that his wife (I think it was Barb, aka "Babs") realized that she had black and white film in her camera? This reminds me of the early B&W episodes of "Gilligan's Island".
And here's one last look at Jack, standing next to a sign that says, "LAND AHOY! Come again! and 'til then… keep your own galley well stocked with Chicken of the Sea Tuna". Aye aye, Cap'n!
