Once again, I've delved into the large box of rejected slides, hoping to make a few of them presentable. The results were fairly satisfactory!
You know it, you love it, the Mark Twain, soon to be Boba Fett's Galactic River Prison. The slide doesn't even have the common decency to be sepia toned. That pink! Those yellowish whites! Ugh.
But it looks pretty good after some fiddling. The sky is blue again, etcetera. Look at the straw hat on the guy standing at the bow. Best dressed. Meanwhile, even though this slide is hand-dated "1960", shouldn't Cascade Peak be at some stage of construction? Unless this is very early in the year, which it very well could be.
There's the Columbia - from the same batch as the Twain photo. You know, I don't ordinarily have anything against pink. It's a perfectly good color. Just ask Barbie. But when it comes to photos, I get all agitated!
Ahhhh, much better. The color isn't perfect, but I can live with it. Say, look at the Columbia, it's packed! They were probably giving away a complimentary Walt Disney autograph to every guest.
