    I was reading on the 1971 Frontierland and how Tom Sawyer Island actually came a few years after the park's opening, and contained elements of the Western River Expedition design... pretty interesting stuff! Anyways... I was looking for photos of the island before it was built and couldn't find any! Do you know of any old photos of Frontierland from before both mountains and Tom Sawyer Island?

    Thanks, thats an awesome and spooky ole pic huh? From what I understand it opened 2 years later in 1973, if so I was interested in pics of the island without the trails on it from between 1971-'72 I suppose...
