Entrance/Exit photos


Today I am presenting a medley of entrance/exit photos, starting with an August 1964 photo of a cute couple standing near the exit sign. I’m not sure, but I think this lady may have Mary Poppins’ carpetbag. Guido the Italian gigolo on the right seems to recognize it also. Shot #2 shows the opposite side from November 1959.



Shot #3 is undated, but must be extremely early judging by the plantings; note the Grand Canyon passenger car on the right, now serving as the Lilly Belle. Somebody please take down the stroller sign.


Another early & undated shot, this one appears to be taken at dusk (I really doubt that the 5 o'clock on the Main Street Station is a.m.).


I'll end today’s post with this shot of 4 adorable people who got all gussied up for a day at the park. Today, they wouldn’t stand a chance of not getting run over by strollers, gargantuan people gnawing on turkey legs, and ignoramicals mindlessly blabbing on cell phones while running into other guests.

Great shots. This is really the old Disneyland. They seem earlier to me than 64, but I see you've noted that. I'm still searching for a shot that includes the bike racks; they were on the east side of the entrance. The shot you have is probably a few years too late to show the bike racks, which were moved early on.

Love that third shot, when Disneyland still feels a bit unfinished and rough around the edges.

Tangaroa - I have to give credit to the 3 stooges on that one.

I like to refer to them as "Annual Passholes"
