A couple of pairs of E-Tickets...

There's a HUGE pile of ticket books and tickets on my desk that I'm attempting to sort through and this couple of pairs of E-Ticket's shouted "post me".

First up, top; I don't have an exact date handy, but I'd place it as 1968 or 1969 as Pirates of the Caribbean is shown but no Haunted Mansion yet.  The bottom one is from April 1973 with one of the last appearances of the Pack Mules thru Nature's Wonderland.  Wow the Globe safety paper is so vivid it looks like it was printed yesterday.

The next pair are the smaller size tickets. These are from 1977 or early 1978.  When Space Mountain opened in May 1977 (as an E-Ticket of course) it was listed only as "Space Mountain" on the ticket.  By 1978 the words "Roller coaster type attraction"  were added next to Space Mountain (link).

Hooray, more tickets! And E tickets at that. I wonder why they added "Roller coaster type attraction" in 1978? You'd think that by then, everyone had heard about Space Mountain and knew basically what it was.
