1950's Disneyland Railroad Goodies
Stamped January 1959, these first two shots were taken during the Christmas season. You can see the wreath and garland hanging at the Main Street Train Station. The colorful benches are a mystery to me, as I have never seen those in this location before. I love the coloring of this photo, as it captures the beauty of sunset just as the lights on the station are becoming visible.
The next shot from this photographer shows the Fred Gurley pulling into the station; off to the right is a parking lot full of vintage autos (well, they weren't vintage at the time, but they are now).
Last one today is also 1959 and is a rare view of the hardly photographed Tomorrowland Depot. This Googie-style station is a hidden gem at the back of the park, and typically the one with the shortest lines.
