July 1960 Trip to Disneyland, Pt. 2

All aboard the Monorail for a trip around the park! The Matterhorn still bears its darker color scheme and the Monorail is enough of a novelty that guests stop to gawk. The original Monorail Red sure is a beauty.

Only one Frontierland image from this batch, showing the Columbia rounding the bend, about to unload another group of satisfied guests that have toured the Rivers of America & Cascade Peak.

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

I never realized that the Matterhorn was darker at first, although I have to admit that it does look darker in many old photos now that you mention it!

And the holes behind the waterfall are still present! I have been wondering about that "brick/stone" bridge visible just above the monorail. There used to be two of those...this one and the one facing the Sub Lagoon. This one is gone now and it's just a "rockwork" bridge. Does anyone know when they changed it? It couldn't have been too long ago.
