I am pretty sure that I have never posted the following images before, having skipped the slides for being beyond my restoration abilities. It's the same old story... they had turned an orangey-red. But a new scanner and years of experience have helped to make them presentable to you, the GDB reader!
Both of today's images are from August 14, 1956, and both feature Frontierland. I love this shot taken from the middle deck of the Mark Twain, looking past some very 50's ladies toward the Old Mill, with the Twain's loading dock visible in the distance.
Here's a second view, taken (I think?) as the Twain has just departed for another voyage around the Rivers of America. I wonder how many times that boat has circled Tom Sawyer Island over the past 60 years?
We also get a nice look at the Golden Horseshoe exterior. There is a fellow with a vest and a cowboy hat standing in the shade. Maybe it's Wally Boag!
