Disneyland, December 1956, Pt. 1
I don’t know too much about the background of this batch from December 1956; it appears to be a group of handicapped people in wheelchairs were getting a special day at the park. Other than that, what else is there to know besides the fact that the photographer got some great views of early Disneyland! One additional note here; although these slides came together in a batch, I am not sure that they are all necessarily related or even taken at the same time. There are a few possible inconsistencies (such as the Circus signage and tent still visible in December of 1956), but hey...just deal, as I am going to present them all together anyway.
In the first parking lot shot, you can see some signage on the right advertising (what’s left of?) the Disneyland Circus.
No Flower Market yet here on West Center Street.
This type of signage was also in display in front of the Castle during the early years:
