Back to the regular post...
Before Jack Sparrow, there was Mildred. Here she is, ready to steer the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship to nowhere, October 1969. I feel bad for this gentleman in the blue sweater; he sense the impending danger of Mildred as he hesitantly enters the ship. Who knows what she's got in that industrial sized purse.
3 years later, Mildred is back at the park; this time, she wants to see what this Small World attraction is all about.
Here are a few other images from Mildred’s July 1972 visit:
Last one of Mildred; she’s in Town Square, and this self-proclaimed sourpuss has been taken in by the Disney magic. She’s bought out the Emporium! Pluto’s dying to know what’s in her purse, and the little boy in yellow looks appropriately in awe, captured by the spell of Mildred’s bouffant.
Mildred has now left the building, but tomorrow we will see some of the other sights that she saw on her visit to Disneyland. See more vintage Disneyland photos on my regular website.
