I've just about burned through all of the slides in this fun lot from 1956, but I should have one more post after this; meanwhile, here are two standard (but nice) shots from Fantasyland.
There's a whole lotta cannons pointed in our general direction, so you'd better be friendly! Notice the birdcage, holding "Paco the Parrot". Pirates love psittaciformes! And no wonder... you can teach them to say things like "Pieces of eight!", "Shiver me timbers!", and even "AAAAR!".
Looking toward us is the Shirley Temple lookalike that we've seen before, and to our left is a little girl sporting a pair of mouse ears.
Are you sick of photos of Sleeping Beauty Castle yet? If so, I don't know why you are coming to this blog... you must be a glutton for punishment. These photos have a warm tone that I could have adjusted, but I liked it for its vintage quality. The two sisters are posing demurely to our right. Near the curb is one of those short-lived signs that sported a map of Fantasyland... people still didn't quite know what they were getting into when it came to this Disneyland place.
