Old Tennants

Here's another piece of concept art from my 1972 Walt Disney World souvenir book. Pirates of the Caribbean finally arrives. 

This was used as part of a promotion for upcoming attractions, and it included new art for Space Mountain and Western River Expedition as well. The above depicted scene is actually part of history now, as Captain Jack Sparrow currently rules the roost on this location. When this scene was fully realized, it made a nice "topping off" of the attraction as well as adding something unique from Disneyland's version. Again, as with all concept art, rights belong to Disney.
