WDW Scrapbook – 13 (the end)

Merry Crimble!! Here’s the last of my Walt Disney World scrapbook from 1975.

First up… the POLYNESIAN VILLAGE

This cute little collage gal dancer probably now has umpteen grandchildren.

Next, it’s TOMORROWLAND!

G.E. ??? That was a while ago!

Extra stuff – These were found on the back of some of the other postcards.

Thanks for stopping in!

WDW Scrapbook – 11

OK, here’s the Country Bear Jamboree. This attraction is still as WDW, but it closed at Disneyland in 2001. Enjoy this furry feature!

This here is hairy host Henry Bear. He (and Mooshead Max) are voiced by my friend Pete Renoudet. Pete played Mickey Mouse on several of my records. 

Yee-haw!  Take care now, y’hear?

I found better renditions of some of this artwork, so I’ve replaced the poorer photocopies with clearer images.  Here is a drawing by Hugh Ferriss. “His rendering of the Hoover Dam is dramatic and abstract, in its depiction of the unusual geometry. If an alien race were to build in large, bold, opaque volumes, Ferriss would be able to capture the essence of those strange beings and their works.

Who remembers Woolworth’s? City Ref 2017-09-22-0026.jpg City Ref 2017-09-22-0027.jpg

Another Ferriss rendering, this time of the Chicago Tribune Tower.

Another another Ferriss piece: The Chanin Building by Sloan&Robertson (1929) is a straightforward skyscraper modeled after the 1922 zoning laws.

Terry Gilliam once used it as a background in one of his wacky animations.

I found a better photo of this movie set than the photocopy, so I’m using it instead.
