1958 Trip in Black and White

A set of black and white views of a family trip to Disneyland in 1958. The first image shows the happy family riding in the Viewliner. I believe the young boy is holding a Tinkerbell Magic Wand.

The second shot is captioned "Andrew at Disneyland & wouldn't he try hard to get his head stuck in the fence." I wonder if he did get his head stuck while waiting for his chicken dinner at the Plantation house?

The classic family group shot in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

A great image of the dad and the youngest beginning their descent into hell aboard Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

Finally a night image with the young boy in his Davy Crockett leather jacket sitting on the mail box in front of the INA building. I love the detail of the new Grand Canyon Diorama sign.

What an unusual amount of great details! Most black and white snapshots I find have pictures of the Mark Twain, the Castle, and all of the usual suspects. No Viewliner, for sure!
