The Dinosaurs Are Coming!

This image appeals to me for so many reasons. If one weren't a Disneyland aficionado, they might think that this photo was taken outside the fence of a prison. Those of us who know better will realize that this January 1966 shot is near the entrance of the park and that the billboard is touting the Primeval World diorama that is about to open. It is ironic that the headline "The Dinosaurs Are Coming!" is flanked by a gaggle of Disneyland Tour Guides.

Sometimes you blow me away with the images you find and post here. A construction shot is always a winner in my book. This has to be the rarest of the rare. The Disneyland Tour Guides add the perfect touch. I love it! Thanks for posting.
