The Early Days of Disneyland



These photos are part of a batch that I believe are from 1956. In this photo, the C.K. Holliday is at the station, with the Disneyland News Stand below. Those are some cool cars in the parking lot!



This shot of Main Street is charming; especially how this young man was captured photographing his sweetheart across the way.



The plastic flower mart is not yet inhabiting West Center Street:



Moving up the street, we reach the Castle.



It must be early morning; the Carrousel doesn't appear to be open yet for business.



One of the signage maps in the park during the early days:

All the photos are extra nice today, but the Castle shot with the King Arthur Carrousel closed is extra cool. I've never seen a view like that before.

Hope you had a nice holiday!
