Cruising the Rivers of America

The majestic Admiral Joe Fowler, an authentic steam-powered sternwheeler, sets sail from Liberty Square on a scenic cruise of the frontier "Rivers of America."

This is an amazing shot of the Admiral Joe Fowler on the Rivers of America with the Haunted Mansion in the background. Notice that the canopy has not been installed at the Haunted Mansion to protect the guests from the Florida sun. It affords a much nicer view of the mausoleum entrance and the front of the mansion.

Any good theme parkeologist will be sure to check out the other details in the postcard. The following is a good shot of the planters by the river and what flowers were planted originally.

As the card continues, you can see the fence and the netting on the fence. This is all important, right?

You can learn a lot more about this postcard and the Admiral Joe Fowler by visiting Brian Martsolf's Walt Disney World in Postcards site.
