Disneyland September 1956
Another batch of black and white gems, this time from September 1956. You know it's the early years of the Park when you see the chicken wire fencing around the young plantings.
Look how bare the Park is; unbelievable. If only people knew how expensive it would be visit Disneyland in the future, they would have rushed the Park when it was affordable! Ah, the wonders of hindsight.
Check out the White Wings at the Popcorn Cart in Town Square.
In previous posts, readers have commented how much more realistic Main Street looked in the early years. This photo would definitely support that sentiment; you could almost believe that the Upjohn Pharmacy pictured here is the real thing!
We have to get closer for a better view! A Keystone Kop, vintage outfits...does it get better than this?
What?!? Nobody sitting in the Carnation Company Truck? Unheard of.
Names on the windows are nothing new; they existed way back when!
A contemporary shot shows that this window for Christopher Miller, Walt's grandson, has been virtually untouched!
Last one for today shows two lucky ladies climbing the steps to the recently demolished Fantasyland Skyway Station.
