Mystery Solved and The Bandstand
Today's image shows the traveling bandstand, which began its life in Town Square, moved to Central Plaza when the park opened, transitioned to Adventureland/Magnolia Park shortly thereafter, and eventually got booted out of the park. Today it resides at an Orange County nursery. Zooming in, it appears that the conductor is Vesey Walker.
The mystery of the date of the photo from the other day has been solved!
Thanks to fellow blogger David at Gorillas Don't Blog, we now have a matching image of a guidebook from 1958:
David even went the extra mile to flip and desaturate the image to show that it's a perfect match.
