A nice shot of the EP Ripley pulling the Main Street passenger train. I like the fencing in the foreground. A photograph that could not be taken today.
A nice image of Sleeping Beauty Castle with one of the white swans out front.
An image of the hippos on the Jungle River Cruise. One can never get too many hippo images!
Last is my favorite photo showing the temple guarded by the monkeys screaming in the trees and off on the left is the elephant carving. The monkeys in the trees did not last long as the animation was very spastic and broke down.

The next image is of the rare Cigar Store Indian which once stood out front of the Frontierland Trading Post. I believe the trading post is now a candy and fudge shop, but it may have been turned into a pin center. According to Major Pepperidge, a dealer had this Indian at the last Glendale Toy and Advertising show.
The final image is my favorite. A nice view from the late 1960s of the majestic Matterhorn mountain. And it appears that a plane towing a sign was spotted overhead (see the black swipe in the upper left part of the photo.) The back of the photo has a great inscription: This is the Matterhorn at Disneyland. Its the same name as our street.

The second image is of the family with Dad posing in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. In the background is nothing as the photograph was taken pre-Matterhorn. Another thing I like about this image is the lack of fencing, everything was wide open much like a park or a college campus.

The next photo shows what can happen when Pirates board your boat. The pirates command you to take it through the thrilling Fantasyland rapids! Beware I fear there be squalls ahead- Keep a sharp eye out for trouble! Avast you there, keep both hands on the wheel!
And to answer Kurt's question from yesterday, most of the photographs come out of swap meets and flea markets. Usually from estates where there were no relatives who wanted the images or from unclaimed storage.
