Oh boy, it's time for another popular installment of Devlin family photos! These are the last from September 1961.
I love this fantastic picture of the Moonliner, with young Patrick posing near us. Notice that the rocket no longer sports the TWA lettering, as that company had ceased their sponsorship of the attraction (Douglas wouldn't begin their sponsorship until 1962). I love the group of pretty girls to the right, and the vivid colors. So great!
This next one is not quite so spectacular, but it's still a nice "you are there" shot taken aboard the Jungle Cruise. I can't tell, is that the bull elephant, or his terrifying mother in-law? In just six years, the jungle was already surprisingly lush.
Never fear, there are more photos (from 1962) to come!
PS, I may as well break it to you now... there will be no special April 1st post tomorrow. Chalk it up to lack of time and inspiration!
