1964/65 Medley



Until my next shipment of crack, oops, I mean Disneyland slides comes in, I feel a little like I am scraping bottom of the barrel ho-hum material here. So...here are a few from an undated batch of 1964/65 shots (same batch as yesterday’s post), beginning with a Skyway shot of Tomorrowland, followed by three Town Square views.







Finishing up today’s post are two shots of Main Street.

Hardly "Ho-Hum" or "bottom of the barrel"! These are wonderful shots and further show that today's Disneyland could benefit from studying the color schemes of the past. I like to think that Main Street will someday return to these gorgeous colors and look as fresh and fun as these photos.
Thanks for sharing these! I think my favorite way to 'visit' the Park these days is via images of the 50s and 60s. I'm sure I'm not alone in that opinion!

What beautiful and strange graphics they put up in those Tomorrowland window panes! They don't really scream "futurism" to me, even in a googie way, but they are intriguing and wonderfully dynamic graphics - great stuff! =)

That first shot cetainly isn't "ho hum"!!!!! Beautiful! Miehana is right (as usual).

I wish I was expecting a shipment of vintage Disneyland slides!

I see those auctions for old Disneyland slides on eBay--and I cross my fingers that Dave or Major Pepperidge or Matterhorn will buy them!

yeah I love the Tomorrowland one. That is a rare angle. I too love that art they had in the panes

That is an awesome Tomorrowland shot! You can see the newly erected Sierra Tower at the Disneyland Hotel in the distance, as well as some cranes, which are probably working on POTC or NOS. Great view of the Flight Circle! That's something they should bring back- the guy with the rocket pack, I mean (the lawyers probably wouldn't allow it though).
