Welcome to Tomorrowland!

This undated negative is from 1955 (since the flags aren’t lining the walk to Tomorrowland yet). This little tyke in the mouse ears is picture perfect. I will be posting more from his trip over the next few days. WHY I CONTINUE TO BLOG: A lady named Barb emailed me that the saxophonist on the right was her father-in-law. His name was Bernie Flymen and he played both sax & clarinet in the Disneyland band the first 5 years the park was opened. He was also in Desi Arnaz’s band on “ Love Lucy.” A million thanks to Barb for giving me this info, and my condolences on Bernie’s recent passing.

That is very cool that you got a bit of personal information about Bernie Flymen...once in a while I will purchase something on ebay from a person who worked at the park in the 50's or 60's, and I am always tempted to ask them a million questions!
