Our 1956 journey to Disneyland is focused around Storybook Land today; the first few shots are from the outside looking in; the last batch are Skyway shots. What trip to the park would be complete without a photo of Monstro? Judging by this empty shot, he’s swallowed up all the guests! #2 & #3 show us Cinderella’s Castle, with and without our favorite Circus Choo-Choo, Casey Jr.
The patchwork quilt looks even more impressive from above; and naturally I am going to zoom-in with a closeup of the rarely seen Fantasyland Depot, with Retlaw 1 just about to pull away. LOVE the candy-cane striped light posts!
Apparently our photographer was also a Disneyland Railroad nut, as he took this 2nd shot showing the E.P. Ripley engine just seconds later.
2 more shots looking back (hope he didn’t turn into a pillar of salt for this):
This is a goofy detail, but I’m zooming in anyway; anyone know about this box that appears to say "Bronco”?
Yup, more 1956 tomorrow; stay tuned. To see more Storybook photos, visit my website.
