Front Gate, September 1959

Today is another mixed bag; a cute older couple at the front gate, with the freight car train in the background. When was the last time you saw lines this short?!? The second shot is somewhat interesting as it is obviously taken from the train, and the landscaping is still looking pretty undeveloped.

The last shot for today is one from Main Street with the Horse-drawn trolley. Yes, all are from the same batch; the slides are stamped September, but I am guessing from the bunting, the actual trip was in July.

Please check out my regular Disneyland website; I have changed the format and updated the photos. Feedback is welcome!

It just goes to show how successful Walt was in creating a place that wasn't just a "kiddie park"...I have come across many slides that show older couples enjoying Disneyland (not escorting grandkids, either).

The last slide is of my favorite attraction. Where else in the world can you still ride a horse drawn streetcar. Put more horse drawn attractions on the street (and double the amount of custodial to take care of it)!

I like the older couple shots. They are always smiling and you can just imagine them telling their neighbors about their trip while showing the slides on the wall of their living room.
