Golden Girls, August 1956

They’re not Blanche or Rose, but these 2 Golden Girls are definitely the best of friends and whooping it up at Disneyland only one year after the park’s opening. Shot #1 shows our fancy-footwear gals getting ready to take a spin around Town Square in a Horse-Drawn Streetcar. For Shot #2, they climbed the stairs of the Main Street Train Station for a nice overview of the park (could somebody please move that Flag Pole? It’s spoiling my view of the Castle!).

These two fun-lovin’ lassies are built for speed, and the Streetcar just couldn’t quench their thirst for it, so the E.P. Ripley had to come to the rescue. Looks like a garden hose is keeping things cool up front today.

After The Grand Circle Tour, our Ladies Who Lunch posed by everyone’s favorite Disneyland icon, The Sleeping Beauty Castle.

See more vintage & current Disneyland photos at my regular website. “Sleeping Beauty,” the Platinum Edition, is about to be released, and boy is this set a beauty (yes, a very bad pun)! The section of extras on the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle Diorama is not to miss.

The Golden Girls are nice (thanks a lot, now I have that theme song stuck in my head!), but the train photo is my favorite.
