More Vintage Pictures from 1972

The Rivers of America.  Notice Tom Sawyer's Island on the left.  Though Tom Sawyer Island was built into the Rivers of America area when the park opened in 1971, it was not fully completed until 1973.

Now this picture will really bring back some memories!!!  Years and years ago, along the WDW Railroad line around where Big Thunder Mountain is today, there was a burning settler's cabin.  It was supposed to look like Indians just attacked and if I remember I believe there was some dialog on the train about it.  

These next series of pictures were from the Jungle Cruise.  I don't know what possessed my parents to take so many pictures of the Jungle Cruise.  Maybe it was THAT exciting back in '72!
