Magic Moment: Walt in the Park, August 1960
I didn’t notice anything particularly stunning about this shot from an August 1960 batch until I scanned it and looked closer. This guest happened to be in the right place at the right time and captured Walt Disney himself at the tracks, commemorating the 10 millionth passenger on the Disneyland Railroad: Raymond S. Tray Sleeper, Jr. Also standing nearby is R.G. Rydin, Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Executive VP. Here’s a detail shot and also a previously posted publicity shot of the same moment.
