Vintage resort pics?

There are some great people on here that have been going to WDW since it opened. I would love to see some older WDW resort pics - older room decor, restaurants/stores/lobbies the way they were. Does anyone have any to share? Pics from 70's 80's and 90's all welcome!

Thanks!!!

OK, I'll kick this off. Here is a pic of the old Tree House Villas. They were 3 bedroom villas; two on the main floor and one at the base of the tree house. It was taken in 1981 and I scanned it from a slide (hence the poor quality). Even though it is not the greatest picture of the villas it still brings back great memories.

I have a bunch from FW cabins in the '80s. As soon as I figure out how to hook up my scanner, I'll post them.

I have some funny pictures of our first trip in 1973 when we stayed at the Contemporary. I have to ask DH to put them on here because I don't know how!

Great idea for a thread! I'd especially love to see some photos of the original decor in the Contemporary and the Poly.

Love the picture of the Poly pool. We were at the Poly in 1976 and remembered the pool slide (we don't have any pics), so, this picture really brings back my memory. Thanks!

Also, we went to River Country the same trip (my only trip as a kid). I should check through my dad's slides one of these days!
