Here are a few more images from the 1966 Main Street area. Walt was still around, though his energy was probably involved in "The Florida Project" at this point. Makes ya think.
Anyway, I always like seeing the Global Van Lines vehicle, parked near the lockers, formerly sponsored by Bekins. Years ago somebody commented that the Global truck belonged to a private collector and was being restored... I hope that the public gets to see it some day. And I hope that I get to jump it over the Snake River on an ABC television special, broadcast to the world. Can we get Howard Cosell to announce it?
A little further up Main Street was the Coca-Cola Refreshment Corner. Because of course, a glass of Coke was "The Pause that Refreshes". I still find it interesting that Coca-Cola was found in some parts of the park (Main Street, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland), while Pepsi ruled in Frontierland and (presumably) Adventureland.
