I'm using up a few less-than-stellar (blurry) images today, starting with this 1956 shot of the Pirate Ship as seen from the Skyway. I like the blue Skyway bucket in the foreground. The cement pond (no critters!) that the ship sat in was no-frills at the time, but it still works.
From this angle we can see beyond the berm for quite a distance; Anaheim still appears to be mostly undeveloped and rural.
This next photo, also from 1956, was strangely faded for some reason. But we get a look at Geppetto's charming village as seen from Casey Jr. The detail and level of craftsmanship is really wonderful. In the upper left we see the candy-striped light posts from Fantasyland Station.
