July 1960 Trip to Disneyland, Pt. 1
In July 1960, the park was only 5 years old. The Monorail, Matterhorn, and Submarine Voyage had just celebrated their first anniversary, and The Haunted Mansion was still almost a decade away. Shot #1 shows a foolish group of guests leaving the park. What were they thinking?!? Go back! Take more photos! Closeup of the E.P. Ripley included.
The photographer might have had a little too much drink when he shot this Town Square slide, or perhaps he was just trying to be creative.
See more vintage & current Disneyland photos at my regular website.
