Walt Disney World
A History in Postcards
Chapter 4 Early Postcard Booklets Page 10: Frontierland
The Frontierland booklet actually points up the fact of how little
was in that land in a way because many of the images included are of attractions based in Liberty Square.
The Diamond Horshoe Revue card, both Steamship shots and the
Keelboat shot are attractions based in Liberty Square,
though at least in the case of the ships they pass through Frontierland. Of Course Big Al, the Davy Crockett
Explorer Canoes, and The Indian Village figures are all representitive of Frontierland.
But what is not pictured here is something very few images
exist of The original Frontierland RR station. When WDW
first opened the trains could only make a Grand Circle Tour
but by the time these booklets came out in 1973 the Frontier
RR depot had been open for over a year a nice
shot of a train filling up at its water tower might have been nice,
I think the steam trains fit in nicely with the frontier.
