    Helicopter Views

    These are a couple years old, but I always appreciate aerial close-ups of theme parks...

    Why is there (what appears to be) theming on the back of the Main Street buildings?

    Most of the pics aren't showing up, so you can go to the linked site. Be sure to click on "original" size.

    Good eyes! You can barely read "Remington Mechanics" painted on the brickwork. Didn't notice that. I've put the question to Eddie Sotto, the land's designer, and will let you know when I hear back from him.

    My only guess would be that when Main Street Motors actually sold vintage cars, this is where they were kept or test driven.

    I would guess that there is themeing on the back of some buildings as they might be viewable from other areas and so as to not spoil the illusion.

    But surely any view of the back of these buildings would only be possible from Frontierland, and then this theming wouldn't fit?

    I'm thinking maybe it's possible from the hotel?
