1957 Disneyland Town Square and Alice Tribute
This colorful image from 1957 shows a bustling Disneyland Town Square with plenty of details to gawk at, like this first one showing a gent filming a home movie next to a placard advertising the Horse-Drawn Streetcar.
In this detailed view, you can see the tip of the construction wall for the never-constructed International Street with a few flags atop of it. The Baby Stroller shop is also visible here, with a stroller hanging down over the door just in case you couldn't read the sign.
In other news, the beloved Ann B. Davis, best known as Alice from "The Brady Bunch" has now joined Sam The Butcher (Allan Melvin) in eternity. I'll bet they're bowling together.
Zooming in, you see her looking lovingly at Jan (Eve Plumb), who also suffered the fate of being the middle child.
Here's the Brady gang at King's Island. Note the famous architectural plans that got lost (temporarily of course), causing all kinds of drama.
A shot of me from years past, posing in front of the home whose façade was used for the exterior shots of the TV show.
And in case you wondered, the "B" stands for Bradford. Who knew?
