Here are two unusual, random views from the 1950's… starting with this very dark (but kind of neat) dusk photo of a Keelboat. The water looks like India ink, and the very last rays of sun are about to vanish. I'm a bit discombobulated… is that the western shore of Frontierland (near the eventual tunnel to the Indian Village)? If so, it seems like the Keelboat is heading the wrong direction (and I'm pretty sure the image isn't flopped). Anyway, this photo has a romantic quality that is very appealing.
And here's a not-great view taken from the queue up to the brand-new Fantasyland Skyway chalet (you can see the steel Skyway supports near the Pirate Ship). Other folks who have just arrived from Tomorrowland are heading down the steps closer to the fence, where a Storybook Land canal boat and Casey Jr. can be seen.
