Canoe Landing and Rafts, July 1961

I didn't know that the canoes at Disneyland could fly, but this area is known as the landing, so it shows what I know. Boy howdy, I'd love to find a picture of one of them flyin' canoes!

Every one of the people in this photo is an "Audio Animatronic", which is Spanish for "Killer Robot". That is why I don't go to Disneyland anymore. It's also why I haven't left my place in 14 years. Unbeknownst to most, those teepees disguise the tips of atomic warheads aimed at Freedomland.

This picture is of nothing silly whatsoever. Except for the hat with the giant pink feather.

The Indian Village sure was a happening place! I mean, happening with killer robots.

What is that building to the front-right of the photo with the Mark Twain? Is it a bandstand that no longer exists?

Interesting! It's weird to see a big blooming bush on the shore like that.

Yes, anonymous, that is a riverfront bandstand that is not longer there.
