Today I have two "leftuggies" for you, both featuring Fantasyland!
Let's start with this one from October, 1970; from this angle, the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship is a jumble of masts, spars, rigging, and sails. As usual, I prefer it when the striped sails are unfurled. The Skyway buckets move to and from the Matterhorn, and a glimpse of the façade of "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" can be seen in the lower right. I really like this busy, colorful photo!
This next one looks like it is from the same lot as the previous image, but it is actually from July, 1967. Looking over the side of the Pirate Ship, guests were met with this impressive scene of whirling teacups, the spinning Carrousel, the castle, and (in this case) considerable crowds.
