Disneyland December 1962, Pt. 2
It never ceases to amaze me that an attraction that didn’t open until 1969 was already well underway by December 1962. You can already guess the attraction I'm referring to is The Haunted Mansion, visible in this detailed closeup view. The length of time is attributable to the fact that the Imagineers just weren’t quite sure what was going to happen INSIDE the Mansion.
In photos #3 & #4, you can see both ends of the Twain, as our photographer waited patiently on the banks of The Rivers of America to capture each view.
In this detailed view, you can see some of the construction occurring near the Mansion and the Frontierland Depot, with Retlaw 1 visible through the trees.
Happy Valentine's Day to all; may your day be filled with love!
