I didn't know what to post for today's "Anything Goes Saturday", so I decided to delve into my folder of vintage Viewmaster scans. Hopefully you'll find it at least a little interesting!
We'll begin a neat shot of the cutest li'l firetruck that ever sailed the Spanish Main. That thing will go zero to sixty in 3.5 seconds, and won Le Mans in 1967. C'est magnifique!
Uh oh, the cops! Just sit there and look innocent. They've launched into the complete Ring Cycle by Wagner, so we're going to be here for a while. 16 hours, by some estimates.
This one's from a different Main Street reel, and shows the Saxomophone Quartet in front of the Mad Hatter shop. In my brain I can only hear "Minnie's Yoo Hoo", the version that has appeared on many "Music of Disney Parks" albums. You've probably heard it.
What are the odds that, just before this scene was set up, the photographer ran into the shop and got one hat for each child? Of course that one girls mouse ears are personalized, so maybe that cancels my theory.
And just because, here's a nice look at Main Street Station, complete with train, posters, the Mickey flower portrait, and even a few ticket booths.
I hope you've enjoyed today's Vintage Viewmaster scans!
