December 1960, Town Square Rose Parade Queens



Just to show Patrick that I am a tolerant man, I am posting this December 19, 1960 view of Town Square which shows a tiny portion of the Stroller Shop that used to be located where the Mad Hatter is now. Mind you...just a tiny portion. Driving around the square are the Tournament of Roses Queen (Carole Washburn) & her court. Naturally, I couldn't feature such a photo without zooming in on these lovely ladies...you can tell that the driver is mighty happy right now!



If you can tear yourself away from these lovelies long enough, you'll also notice that the Opera House has posters promoting the Subs and the Monorail on either side of the entrance. I am also including a detail shot featuring the Portrait Shop & Wonderland Music.



See more vintage and current Town Square photos at my website.

The platinum blonde has that movie-star look, while the others look like pretty girls-next-door!

I think you have taken the first step towards resolving your issues with the strollers!!

I have a masculine shot to match this, the football teams for the Rose Bowl on the Fire Truck.
