A Picture Is Worth...

Only one photo today, but with plenty of details to see, you get so much more from this 1961 Castmember spectacular in front of Disneyland's Main Street Train Station. The first detailed view shows jester/juggler/unicycler Christopher Fair:

Here's a color shot of Christopher from my collection from June 1963:

And a shot of his backside in front of the castle:

At the center of this detailed view is Roy Williams from the Mickey Mouse Club:

He was performing various duties in the park, including doing drawings/caricatures on Main Street:

The shoe shine dancing duo of Kenny & Teddy can be seen at center here:

And in New Orleans Square in this 1966 image:

Bill and Lloyd Elliott of the musical Elliott Brothers can be seen here:

They played in the Plaza Gardens that have now been replaced by Fantasy Faire:

The Gonzalez Trio made it to Main Street for the group photo:

Here they are back in Frontierland:

And last, a shot of the trio of stars from the Golden Horseshoe Saloon, Wally Boag, Betty Taylor, and Donald Novis:

They can be seen inside the 'shoe in the same order in this vintage color transparency:

I'd say I got my mileage out of that photo!

What a cool find. I could study this photo for days. I've already spotted the Tahitian Terrace group and Submarine Lagoon mermaids. Wonder who the guy playing the banjo next to Roy Williams is. Great post today. Thanks, Dave.

Dave; Is that not Raberta Shore to the right of the big Mickey, in front of the band in the dark jackets? She was on Buena Vista label for a while, then played in "The Verginian" TV series. The band played at the Space Bar, and I got a chance to dance with her. She was very nice, and had easy way with her fans.

Opps! Sorry about the misspell. It should be Roberta Shore.

Ha, there's the astronaut too. Love my astronaut character.

Thanks Dave, this is a real treasure.
