Here are two lovely shots, circa 1959, featuring the Plantation House (sponsored by Swift). I particularly like the first view with the people in the foreground - as far as I can tell they are near that bridge that went over the river's Jungle Cruise connection. You can see the sail of a Tom Sawyer Island raft between the people and the house.
If you would prefer basically the same photo without so many people, here you go! Imagine how nice it would have been to take a seat out front, in the sunshine (but shaded by an umbrella), with the River and all its excitement so close by.
Zooming in on the top floor (and lightening things just a bit), we can just see that the Gonzalez Trio is performing for diners. How fun would that be!
