Disneyland lists the Storybook Land Canal Boats as a "1955 Original" - one of the rides that was open from the park's very beginning.
These pictures were taken by my father in 1956, during the first trip he and my mother ever took to Disneyland. They appear to be taken from the Casey Jr. Circus Train:
I enhanced the color to bring out the detail (the original slides are very faded--I still have some touching up to do).
Any ideas why Storybook Land appears to be very much under construction almost a year after it "opened"? Is it, in fact, not an original, or was there something wrong with the ride that required a major overhaul?
