Q: Was there ever a shop on Main Street in Walt Disney World where you could dress in period costumes and they would take your picture like you were on the back of a train? A friend swears they had this in the mid 1980's but they don't have the pictures to back it up.

A: This was part of the Camera Center on Main Street, U.S.A. in the early 1980s when it was sponsored by Polaroid (they sponsored from 1979 to 1984). Guests would put on 19th century costumes and pose for photos in the back of a railroad car, themed to the Walt Disney World Railroad, for an “instant 8x10 portrait.”
