This undated 1950s shot taken from the Skyway shows Pinocchio's Monstro, the famous whale that serves as the entryway to Disneyland's famed Storybook Land attraction.
Zooming in, you can see the gigantic Storybook Land Map that advertised the attraction when it first opened.
Another aerial shot with a similar view:
Here's a closeup of that great big beautiful Storybook; wonder what happened to it?
Back to Monstro…thanks to some funky lighting and vintage image fading, he looks like he needs a trip to the dentist.
From January 1959, Monstro's profile:
"To be, or not to be…that is the question."
See more Monstro, both vintage & current, at my main website.
