I have a pair of slides that were in desperate need of color correction, so I put on my green visor, rolled up my sleeves, and went to work! The results were pretty good, if I do say so myself.
This boy is waiting for the next available Autopia vehicle, while two cast members argue drunkenly in the background (!). Gee, things sure look pink.
Ahhh, that's better. I almost forgot that blue existed. This kid would later change his name to... David Bowie! Not really. But he reminds me of the Thin White Duke, with the vest and the whole deal.
See? I'm not crazy!
Here's an unusual view, with the young Duke sitting on the Red Wagon, with the Red Wagon Inn out of frame to our left. I wonder if all of those pennants in the distance were there to get guests excited about the upcoming "Edison Square"?
The restored photo is so much easier on the eyebones. We can see a sign indicating that we can register for a guided tour - is the tented structure where the guides themselves could be found? To the right is the Baby Station, where ladies (never fathers!) could get formula, have a bit of privacy if they needed to nurse their babies, change diapers, and all that jazz. Notice the sign that says "Stroller Parking".
