Hump Day on Tom Sawyer Island



It's Wednesday, and you've hit hump day, that marvelous day when you're half-way through the work week and the weekend is quickly approaching! Here's an October 1959 view of the Tree House on Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland. The next undated image is most likely from 1956/1957.



And this is how I know...Case de Fritos is still in its original location on New Orleans Street:



This black and white image of TSI yields a few interesting detail shots:



Some fishing action:



and the tent for Holidayland:



This December 1959 image shows guests waiting for a raft so that they can return to the "mainland":



A detailed view:



Hope you enjoy your Hump Day!

Space Bar Vending



This 1955 image shows two guests checking out the flowers in Tomorrowland, with the Space Bar vending machines in the background. Nice to know that flowers will still exist in the future. Sandwiches, ice cream, soft drinks, pastry, and coffee are just the touch of a button away.



Here are some previously posted shots of the same area; this one from 1956 has the added bonus of the vintage attraction posters in the foreground:



Yup, people used these machines!



I think I would have preferred to order directly from the Space Bar itself!

House of the Future for Christmas



Here's a rare night shot of the Monsanto House of the Future at Disneyland from December 1959. You can just see the bright red of the Christmas ribbon/ornamentation at the top right of the photo. Zooming in we see a young couple standing by the window, with a "live" Christmas tree in the foreground.



Here's a previously posted shot of the HOTF and its Christmas decor:
