Disneyland, March 1959

I’m still in my Christmas food coma, so today will be a quickie, featuring 3 images from March 1959 (yup, just like the title says!). Image #1 is your basic Town Square & Horse-Drawn Street car shot. #2 is a parking lot view that is more notable for its background than its foreground. The detail shot is provided to show the construction of the Matterhorn.

Last one for today shows the Keystone Kop band playing outside the Opera House. These guys would be fun to have back at the park. In the background you can see the poster advertising the recently opened Grand Canyon Diorama.

See more vintage & current Disneyland photos at my regular website.
