In recent weeks I have been in contact with George Short, a Club 55er who worked in the Sound Department until 1987. On Opening Day he worked with RCA and set up televisions for sponsors and executives to see the live broadcast; he told me his job that day was so easy that he spent most of the time just walking around! George was (is?) also into photography and took a number of photographs over the years. He recently sent me a DVD of scans he made of some of these photos before giving them away or discarding them. I'll be sharing the rarer (and interesting!) ones in the near future. To start off, here are three photos of Space Mountain construction in 1975:
Thanks again, George!
