Here are two swell photos of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship when it was only around 3 months old (remember, it opened in August, not July). As is usually the case in 1955, the guests are nicely dressed - and they're ready for cool weather.
This one was taken from the less-photographed side (around back), and looks great with the web of masts, spars, sails and rigging. I wonder how often the ropes needed to be replaced, since they were exposed to the harsh California sunshine every day?
