MORE Gems from Disneyland August 1961
A few more from the August 1961 collection of vintage Disneyland images, starting off with a shot of the Fred Gurley. It's always fun to get a closer look at the cast members of yore.
Our 1961 photographer seemed to like Adventureland and the decor at the entrance.
I had to get a better look at the mask at the top of the entrance sign:
I am in Tiki heaven with this shot:
After admiring the tiki statue my eyes went right towards the signage:
Before moving on to other adventures, the photographer shot one more in this area:
This one was dubbed: "The Castle Fairyland." Well...close.
This double exposed shot is still lots of fun.
How about that TWA bag; wonder if she was a stewardess. Oh, excuse me...flight attendant.
From the Skyway bucket we have this view of Cinderella's Castle from the Storybook Land attraction:
A closer look at the village below:
This inscription on the slide has me intrigued: "Riverboat ride even served mint juleps on the ride." Anyone out there remember beverages being served aboard the Twain?
Another shot of the Twain taken from dry land:
Zooming in to the raft that transported guests to Tom Sawyer's Island:
This one was labeled: "Indian camps along river on the riverboat ride."
This closeup is all about the signage, not the stroller.
A shot from the dock of the Jungle Cruise:
Zooming in we can see that it's the Congo Queen:
This one was labeled: "Jungle ride was so dark!"
Hope you enjoyed this amazing set of vintage images from 1961! More vintage (and current!) Disneyland photos at my main website.
