A Day at Disneyland, September 1964 (pt. 1)
I always enjoy finding a box of slides that document an entire day at Disneyland; seeing what people choose to ride, and also seeing what they choose to photograph and how they compose it. This box from September, 1964 is pretty good, so I am going to include the best ones in chronological order. The first two are from the long-gone Flower Mart on Main Street. Apparently, you could buy fake flowers in this little alley. Sounds bizarre, but I guess they did pretty well for almost twenty years.
Picture three appears to be of an artist on Main Street at the Art Festival, sketching the family’s little blond haired daughter. This is probably my favorite slide of the bunch. Stay tuned for more pics tomorrow! Check out my regular Disneyland website (click here); I have changed the format and updated the photos. Feedback is welcome!
