More August 1970 Fun



No need for Starbucks back in 1970; Hills Brothers had you covered in Town Square. Take a look at the menu: waitress service, soup of the day, PB&J, hot beef french dip, AND apple turnovers!



Next door is the "Walt Disney—A Legacy For the Future" display in what was formerly the Wurlitzer Shop. No ticket needed for this one folks; it's FREE!



Check this out—3 forms of transportation visible in one shot. The Skyway, The PeopleMover, and The Monorail. Boy do I dig the Tomorrow of Yesterday!



I also dig shots of the Skyway buckets sailing through the Matterhorn.



Our Skyway bucket is sailing directly into the Fantasyland station...



Where a cast member in lederhosen is waiting to greet us.



I could say I am zooming in to read his name tag (Chalmer), but the real reason is to see that cool vintage Disneyland shopping sack!

I well remember the design of those shopping bags!

Thank you for that first picture. Prime 'real estate' to be sure.

I really like the "3 Forms of Transportaion" image. That's a great angle of the monorail and PeopleMover.

Yes, I remember those bags too!

Chalmer looks charming. They don't make 'em like that anymore... Nor do they make Skyways. :-/

Wow, great pictures, what Thufer said.

I have a scan of that bag paper courtesy of Vintage Disneyland Tickets. It's an awesome screen backdrop.

Thank you Dave.

OOOOH, that bag design really takes me back.

I was likely working that day in the kitchen making those sandwiches at Hill's. Boy does that take me back to good times with CMs that I worked with. I'd hop back in time machine in a heatbeat if I could.

That's really the only way to stand in lederhosen.
