Wednesday WOW: July 1957, Pt. 2
Guest shots that include Walt are highly coveted (at least by me and a whole passel of other slide/photo geeks!). The series that started yesterday actually includes a shot of Walt’s back/side standing in front of City Hall in Town Square. The Square really resembles a true Main Street meeting place, with a ton-o-guests watching the ceremonies to welcome the State Legislators. I wonder if this would draw a crowd at Disneyland today? Probably not so much as Miley Cyrus or the Jonas Brothers, but maybe a guest or two would stop and watch. Note the souvenir hats at the bottom of the detail shot as well, and the leis around the necks of the gentlemen on the stand with Walt. Must have had a Hawaiian theme going.
See more Town Square (both recent and vintage) photos at my website.
