Welcome to Disneyland, February 1962
The first thing I notice in this February 1962 photo is the gent in the foreground with the cigarette dangling from his mouth. In this day and age where smoking is tantamount to armed-robbery, it does seem a bit startling to see this man's grin while his cancer stick dares you to comment.
Zooming in, we see something much less threatening going on in the background. A vivacious young Disneyland Tour Guide is most likely getting acquainted with the party she will be accompanying through the park.
What stands out in this image for you?
