The Gardner Collection, Disneyland 1955: Pt. 1
Dick Gardner was stationed in San Diego with the Navy back in 1955; fortunately, he took a lot of BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL color photos of Disneyland while he was in Southern California. He has graciously allowed me to post his images for all of you to drool over. Today, I present 7 gorgeous interior shots of The Golden Horseshoe. Grab a Pepsi and let’s get going!
Here’s a cool one of Wally Boag doing his balloon act. Sitting in the box next to the stage is none other than Ward Kimball, wearing his Firehouse 5 getup.
Those Can-Can girls sure had a leg up on the competition (oh, that hurts it’s so bad!)
Judy Marsh out front, and Ward Kimball can be seen again in the alcove:
Donald Novis, Irish Tenor, is at the microphone:
Wally looks like he means business in this photo...MONKEY business that is; Judy Marsh is center and Donald Novis on the far right:
