(Nanook and TokyoMagic! both caught an error in which I accidentally typed the year "1972" instead of "1971". I can't explain how I managed to do that baffling typo!)
It's back to Florida we go - The Magic Kingdom, circa November 1971! The park had only been open a matter of weeks. These photos are from yet another batch of negatives that my friend "Mr. X" was going to throw away - but happily, he gave them to me. Today's examples are not the most exciting, but I am saving the better photos for later!
I haven't seen many night shots of WDW's grand Main Street Station, so in that regard these are nice. FYI, the next 40 (or so) Magic Kingdom photos that I will be posting will be nighttime pictures. The lit clock says it is only around 6 o'clock, but it is dark; winter, you know. I noticed that the "population" and "elevation" info hasn't been added to the sign yet.
Here's a slightly more dramatic angle. You can just see part of the Mickey Mouse floral portrait, and the silhouette of one of the large steam trains as it pulls into the station.
Don't worry, they keep getting better and better after this!
