Disneyland October 1955, Pt. 2



As we leave the impossible world of Fantasyland (Merlin's Magic Shop in the background), we exit into the land of Tomorrow:



It is an unintentional irony that the word "WASTE" is visible in the foreground; today, a shot like this might not be so unintentional. Our photographer strolled down Main Street next.



Silent Screen Star Mabel Normand is featured at the Main Street Cinema:

It's funny, the memories that come flooding back to you when you see something in a photo. For example, seeing the green and yellow trash bin on Main Street. I remember those! I know I was uber young but I remember them.

Seeing shots of Tomorrowland is great for me because that is an area that I hardly have any memories of. I do remember the "Space Man" and "Space Girl" but that was years later.

Last but not least, in the first photo, I REALLY love the souvenir kiosk. So cool!

Wow! you have the greatest pictures!
thanks Dave!
It's great to see the surreys on Main street being used daily back then!
Today they're only used for Special events and Parades...

The Kiosk in Fantasyland? was it for souvenirs or info??? just wondering?

and true The "Waste" basket belongs in
Tommorrowland entrance now!
or it should just say "Cluttered Mess"

Thanks again Dave!

Your top slide is so compelling. One just wants to step inside it.

Thanks, Dave.
