Take a gander — if ye dare! — at some vintage postcards of the famous Disneyland ride, Pirates of the Caribbean. These photos show the ride before tweaks were made to incorporate Johnny Depp and aspects from the hugely-successful Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

The original exterior of the ride

The Pirates of the Caribbean facade is seen here (probably in the mid-1960s), before an additional structure was added to hold the lines of visitors
