Haunted Mansion is Coming

Today's image is taken from an early 1960's publicity photograph showing kids waiting in line to see an empty Haunted Mansion. I think all they got to was to the door, to find out that no ghosts or attraction was inside. Here is the tag line from the back of the photograph:

Look for more Haunted Mansion images on Monday and Tuesday.

Very cool picture of the Mansion. It reminds me of when I was a kid. Our Indian Guide Tribe (the Iroquois) was supposed to go, but as it turned out only me and my Dad, and anohter kid and his Dad went. The rest of the tribe didn't show up because it was raining that day. Which, as it turned out, was the best way to see the Haunted Mansion for the very first time. The skies in your picture look threatening...

Thanks for the post - love the HM stuff! I always assumed you couldn't get past the gates.

Check out the kid in the derby (or is it a bowler?). I've often thought that it must have been super frustrating to see this amazing mansion for so many years - - just sitting there with the gates closed. The anticipation must have been huge!

I don't think guests COULD get past the gates.I'm sure this was a publicity shot only--notice how EVERYONE is looking at the mansion at the same direction and angle......I have an old 1967 picture of my mom in front of the Mansion's gates and the opening soon sign while she was pregant with me....beyond the gates is a man mowing the estates lawn...
