Trip to Disneyland: April 1965, Pt. 2
We’re off the tram and our two little "child stars" are about to enter the park. In picture two, they’ve actually made it in! Pay no attention to the bright & beautiful attraction posters hanging here...I’m sure there’ll be no interest in them some 40 years later.
Junior risks his life by petting the Streetcar Horse; looks like all is okay though, as he is able to walk his way down Main Street after this act of bravery.
Junior takes a moment to pose with his stylish sister in front of the famous Wooden Indian by the Main Street Cinema & Tobacco shop.
Across the way, our little camera hog yucks it up in the Bob Gurr Carnation Wagon. I’ll admit; this kid is not much of a yucker.
For you Southern California Disney fans (or those visiting SoCal 2/6 & 5/10), there is a cool exhibit coming up at the Western Center for Archaeology & Paleontology in Hemet called “Disney: The Music Behind the Magic.” It’s the first comprehensive exhibit devoted to exploring and examining the role music has played in The Walt Disney Company's phenomenal successes over the past 80 years. Download the info flyer by clicking here or visit the website at westerncentermuseum.org. See more vintage & current Main Street U.S.A. photos at my regular website.
