September, 2007Curiosity finally got the better of Anne Salisbury, who works at the Emporium. On several occasions, she had noticed a little old man, cane in hand, obviously enamored with the horse-drawn vehicles of his boyhood days. Finally, Anne aproached the elderly gentleman and asked if he was having fun. "Sure am," he replied. "What do you like best about Disneyland?," Anne inquired. Said the little old man, "I can jaywalk here!" (Vacationland, Winter 1961-62)

Based on my experience with modifying the other pieces (mostly the Opera House-Mad Hatter-Bank piece), I decided it would be easier to construct and modify the roofs and backstage areas by removing these areas altogether with my band saw. This is the result of the band saw process.1 comments
