1950s City Hall

Yesterday, we saw Shirley Temple fighting City Hall; today, we see Walt Disney's version of City Hall at Disneyland. This is one of my earliest color shots of City Hall from Summer of 1955. How about a scenic ride on a horse-drawn carriage?

Or perhaps you'd just like to rest your weary feet up on the City Hall front porch. These days, with the crowds of guests it would be difficult to do this.

This vintage shot of City Hall has a ghostly cast to it; possibly a poor attempt of somebody to take a photo of an existing shot. Still, the image itself is pretty cool.

A young boy is leisurely selling the Disneyland News. Must have been a hot day, or else this boy just was not motivated to earn any money.

A ladder is leaning up against the exterior of Walt's Apartment.

This black and white City Hall photo is from September 1956.

Love the hat on the boy AND the horse!

Very cool to see Marty Sklar's future office still say "Police Station" on it. I don't recall when that got removed, but I remember the police band that played at one time. I can't get over the mere wire fences around the landscaping. Such an honor system wouldn't work today.
