Today I am re-sharing two lovely photos of Main Street Station - both from 1957, and both featuring a nice look at the amazing attraction posters that line the fence near the Mickey floral portrait.
This first one was originally posted in March, 2009 and was hand-dated "January 5, 1957". There's the E.P. Ripley, under a beautiful sky with the yellow passenger cars (or at least the Combine); those things might have been slow to load and unload, and they didn't provide the best seating for optimal vistas, but they are still my favorites just to look at.
Posters, posters! "Space Station X-1", "Rocket to the Moon", "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", the rare "Tri-level" Frontierland poster... wowee.
This next one was posted in August of 2009, and once again we see the E.P. Ripley, this time accompanied by his li'l buddy, the Kalamazoo hand car! The color in this one is especially fantastic. Everything looks so crisp and neat. And there's an über rare "Art Corner" poster (I've only seen one with my own eyes), a "Main Street Station" with its unusual lilac background color, "Storybook Land" (one of the most iconic posters, imho), and the "Astro Jets". So awesome!
