Disneyland Monorail Red, July 1965

In this July 1965 image, you get the Disneyland Monorail, the Disneyland Hotel sign (which looks somewhat similar to the one that was on Harbor Boulevard), AND the Disneyland Hotel. Unfortunately, zooming in the sign is too blurry to read.

Don’t worry about it; in my collection I have a 1966 image that shows the Hotel sign:

Here’s the one that was on Harbor Boulevard, circa July 1965:

This view of the Park entrance was taken from the Monorail, July 1965:

Hope you all enjoy the weekend!

Shots of the parking lot always try my car ID-ing skills. I'll limit myself here, and stick to the vehicles with their rear ends pointing our way. That's a 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air on the left; and a 1953 Pontiac to its right.

Interesting, in the 3rd image, the sign from Coldwell Banker 'advertising' commercial retail space available for lease in the new Plaza Building.

And unless I'm all turned-around, that first image is showing the Harbor Boulevard sign, with [the then] Wilbur Clark's Crest Hotel in the background. And as long as we're talking Pontiac's... that's a 1955 model year driving-away from us in 4th image.

Thanks, Dave.

Nanook - to say your knowledge is astounding is an understatement! Kudos to the owners of the 1953 Bel Air for keeping it going after 12 years!
