Dapper at The Disneyland Hotel

This recently acquired batch of slides is a mystery. Taken in June of 1966 at the Disneyland Hotel, I have no idea who this dapper dressed gent is.

This has to be more than just a tourist's casual set of shots, as there are more than ten shots of this guy, spanning at least two different rolls of film.

I wonder what that roll of paper in his hands is?

If nothing else, he seems to be in a good mood...

even if he is blocking a perfectly good shot of the Red Monorail!

If you know who this is, please leave a comment!

Just a reminder as time closes in on my Dapper Day Photo Contest. Readers can submit photos to my email ( in vintage attire, and the winner would get my photo services for the day at this year's Dapper Day at Disneyland on Sunday, February 24th. Don't delay!

See more vintage and current Disneyland Hotel photos on my Disneyland Hotel photo web page.

These are obviously somewhat professional photos. The poses seem to be for publicity. To bad we don't have face-recognition software to search the web. I would bet he's an executive with a major company. (A fairly good suit, cuff links, etc.)

Maybe Don Ballard will recognize this gentleman!

C'mon, guys! Easy one! It's the unacknowledged father of Greg Kinnear and Pee Wee Herman, can't you tell?
