Science has proven that photos of the Mark Twain are literally a dime a dozen (we all remember Dr. Heinrich Von Shnook's famous study).
BUT... that doesn't mean that they can't be fun to look at. Like this first one, from 1956, showing the steamboat after it had just arrived at the landing; Everyone is getting ready to disembark (notice the cast member who is about to open the railing, and the band standing up. Bonus - the feathers on their hats cleaned the ceiling). One guy on the middle level is taking a few last photos from up there. The shore of Frontierland is a whole lotta bare dirt, except for a few scrawny shrubs.
Now we're up on the top level - that's where I almost always go! This affords us a nice look at some of the gingerbread details. We can also see the silhouettes of two cast members up in the Pilot House; I know you can ask to ride up there, but I've never done it. Someday?
