Sometimes there is a certain picture that brings back fond memories of SDC.  I believe this one from 1977 does that for me more than any other.  In the 1970's it seems there was always a group or individual playing music on the left side as you entered the Hospitality House.   It seemed they were playing just for me to welcome me to the city.

I know I have requested this before, but here I go again! Any photos of the diving bell? Things out of your family scrapbooks, 1977 to 1984. The old Deepwoods area is the Riverfront area today, so any photos out of that area? I was at the diving bell as JUNIOR DUGAN 1979-1984, and love seeing old photos of the attraction and its employees. Good times indeed!

No, sorry Junior, I wish I did.   Here is a couple of slides/photos from 1977 of the Wally Welch Puppet Show that was located where the Wagon Works Grill is today.  Sorry about the quality.

Here is a picture from probably the mid 1960's of the front of the General Store (I think).   It's interesting how much Civil War items were on display, and for sale at the city at this time.   Things have definitely changed!

Here is a slide/picture from 1977 that I have no idea of the exact location.  My only guess would be around the Ozark Marketplace.....nothing really for me looks familiar to compare with today.

The flat roof is where the Valley Woodcarvers are, now. You're standing at the top of the stairs that go down to the backside of the restrooms. You can barely make out the underpass, the tracks would be just to the right.


There are two lamp posts in the middle at the bottom where you would walk underneath the underpass into The Deep Woods (same as today).   The flat roof to the left looks kind of odd to me.   I am sure it would look fine if I could see the whole picture, but planted flowers and plants on the roof??

I saw that but still thought it might be tree branches.   It sure does look like RR tracks though.

Any help on this slide/picture from 1977 is appreciated.  When I first looked at it I had no idea what I was looking at.  Then I started pieceing it together, and think it was took next to the tree house with their back to Big Jack's sandwich shop.   Looks like they took it looking at the Saloon with Fire-In-The-Hole in the background.   It seems like you should be able to see the train tracks, but maybe they are just out of sight to the right.   I believe this would have been about the first year that the Deep Woods would have been open, and The Diving Bell would have opened in 1977 also.

Oh man!  That modern dolly and those plastic crates really bug me.

Yeah!  And those modern prices are pretty annoying too  :)

In 1977 a small and large popcorn was 35 and 50 cents.   Today a small is $3.69 and large is $3.99.
Also in 1977 drinks were 40 and 50 cents.  Today a small is $3.29 and a large is $3.99.  Today a Dasani water is $2.39.  Can you imagine trying to sell water in 1977....someone would really be hung on Main Street.

Here is a slide/picture from 1977 of an old popcorn wagon on Main Street.  It looks like the Shot Tower is just to the left, and the Gazebo is just to the right in this picture.

I'm pretty sure they still use this cart? I noticed it on my last visit and wondered where it came from since it kind of looked custom made.

I think your right on this because there are still a few that I know of still in use at the city.  There are 2 on Main Street.  One faces Molly's Mill and the other faces the Gazebo.   Here is a picture of the one facing the Gazebo, which still looks pretty much like the one in 1977.

Here is a slide/picture from 1977 looking down Hugo's Hill Street toward the Lumbercamp.  At least this is what it looks like to me.   I know there is not much to see here, but even a small glimpse into the past at SDC is interesting.

You know where the water wheel is at the AP.  That's the same building, I think they used to have water sluces for that water wheel but I dont think any more.

I believe that water sluce is still there turning that wheel unless they have took it out recently.  Just not everyday it's working.

Is that the spot where the walk way turns right then goes down the steps to the loading station currently?

This guy is standing about midway where you watch the plunge from the platform today, and the mill which was the entrance.   I have another old picture from the internet that shows the entrance to the old Float Trip.   The entrance is right behind the man sitting down.  Sorry about the quality of the picture,  but the answer to your question is no.  The loading today is on the other side of the mill in these pictures.

So in other words, this guy and the entrance to the old ride is basically the exit for the current ride

The entrance to the old Float Trip is sealed.....you would go directly into the mill.  Today when you exit, you walk behind the mill along the trail and up on the platform to exit or watch boats go under you.  So yes, today you could pretty much touch people entering the old Float Trip as you exit today.
