stuff from the park: Boy in Frontierland

http://matterhorn1959.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Starting up after a 2 week trip to California. While at the Disney Show, I purchased a small selection of slides. These three slides which feature the early Frontierland were part of the grouping. Unfortunately the photographer did not have the best focus, but the views are still good.

I usually don't DisMark too many "photos only" posts, but this one pulls at my heartstrings -- I'm just an EPCOT kid at heart. Here's one of the Universe of Energy dinosaurs being put together, and a scene from World of Motion being constructed.

stuff from the park: Making the Jungle Cruise Animals 1854- Never Smile at a Crocodile

http://matterhorn1959.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

The creation of the crocodiles that are always looking for a hand out. I believe this is Bob Mattey working on the jaw of the crocodile. From the angle of the photo, it appears he is doing his best impression of an alligator wrestler.

stuff from the park: Small Vintage Sketches of Disneyland

http://matterhorn1959.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

The sketches were purchased from the daughter of one of the main importers of souvenirs for Disneyland. I am not sure if larger paintings were executed of the sketches, or if they were actually used on merchandise. The sketches measure approximately 2 by 2 inches in size and are well done.

Photos of Main Street Electric Parade in the Warehouse

http://matterhorn1959.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Here is an interesting publicity photograph. Interesting because the photo shows the parade with the lights on, but with no parade cast members. I like that you can see all the various floats. I believe this image dates from the late 1970s or early 1980s.
