Erik Biczkow sent these wonderful black and white photos given to him by his grandmother.
The first photo might look a little mysterious. The miniature castle in the background is still there today. It's in Storybook Land and belongs to Cinderella. It was taken aboard the pirate ship in Fantasyland (where Dumbo is today).
I love the angle of the Submarine Voyage photo. How creative is that.
And a canoe passing Tom Sawyer Island. Are those docks part of the old fishing area of the island, where guest could catch real fish? Yup. They say an underwater net was placed just around the dock and trout were stocked regularly. Guest could take the fish they caught with them or have them sent to the front of the park for later pickup. And according to Daveland, this was added to emulate Knott's Berry Farm's Old Mill Stream attraction.
