1961's Queen of the Jungle

Artist and Disney designer Kevin Kidney has an entertaining post over on his blog today featuring fashion photos from 1961 featuring ladies modeling all over Disneyland. You'll have to follow the link to see all of them, but I had to share the Jungle Cruise picture here, featuring a lovely young woman who is not keeping her arms, legs, or ANYTHING inside of the boat (except maybe her pants):

That's right, wave goodbye to all the beautiful people back on the dock.

I hear that the skipper on duty thought it was only fair that if he showed her the backside of water, she should show him her backside too.

Funny to think that in 1961 this was probably the least amount of clothing anyone had ever worn on a Jungle Cruise boat (at least during operating hours). Today it's pretty much the average amount. Maybe a little more.
