I love me some vintage Main Street! This November was gray and overcast, but it must not have been too chilly; look at how the guests are dressed. Plenty of short sleeves. A Horse Drawn Streetcar heads away from us, as does a Horseless Carriage (which narrowly missed the one pedestrian in the street - he's lucky to be alive!).
This is a fairly standard view of the Chicken of the Sea pirate ship as ween from the Skyway; it has only a few striped sails unfurled, but it's better than none. I realize that this is from 1958, but the two girls (in blue dresses) about to board the ship look like they are refugees from a performance of "Oklahoma!".
Extra! Extra! Here's an extra scan from 1955 for TokyoMagic!, in which you can see the street sign for East Plaza Street.
