From January 1973, this is on the monorail moving from the Contemp and approaching Main Street Station- this area is now a huge bus depot!

I love these. I wish they would have kept them and just moved them so you would still see them on the drive in.

At least two of those you have seen... Elephant on ball is, was, at the Dumbo ride. And the other elephant doing headstand was right outside the main entrance on the walkway to the COntmep.

The snake, water monster, whatever it is, that is now on the river to the east and south of the castle used to be under the tracks of the monorail as it headed out of the TTC to the Contemp.

I will also point out that these were real topes- not stuff stuck on a wire frame.

I knew about the Elephant. I can't remember if I've seen an old picture of the sea serpent thing or not.

This is also from Jan 73, pulling out of the TTC- and under the rail you can see the serpent.



And here are the other two topes:
[and looking at these now, it is clear, though related, they are not the same topes as in the opening picture. Well, at least one of them isn't...]
