A Sundae for Nixon

On June 14, 1959, Vice President Richard Nixon and family were invited to christen the Monorail. At some point in the day, they also enjoyed some ice cream at the Carnation Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street U.S.A. His mother, Hannah Milhous Nixon, is at left, wearing the Special Guest tag in addition to the Guest Pass ribbon for the day.

Nobody seems to be paying attention to whatever it is that Vice President Nixon is talking about.

Nixon is shaking the hand idea on this one. I'll give a thrill to one of my readers and let them chime in.

Whoever he is, he doesn't have the "Special Guest" designation that Mrs. Nixon has.

Tricia is not happy that her dad is the only one getting ice cream. No idea what Julie thinks, but it would appear that it is bringing some laughter to Mom and Dad.

Oh that sundae looks good.

Tricia reaches her spoon in for this one, but the rest of her is cropped out. I think I'll go see what's in the freezer. I'm hungry now.

More Nixon family at Disneyland photos at my main website.

That's Julie Nixon reaching her spoon into the sundae -- Tricia is on the other side, looking like a prim young teenager that she was by then.

Beachgal I know Julie personally, so my text is correct for the last photo. Tricia is at right with the disembodied hand reaching over for the ice cream. Now how about identifying the two mystery men behind the Nixon family?
