Just one question, why was the Fantasyland Viewliner Blue and the Tomorrowland Viewliner Pink? I always thought of Fantasyland as a pink land and Tomorrowland with more of a blue hue.

The back is double marked with a copyright for Walt Disney Productions.
This does bring me back to days of playing gunfighter with my brothers.

The camera bug then snapped a photograph showing a nice overview of Town Square as seen from Main Street Station.

The second photograph shows the entrance at a slightly less crowded time although it is the same day. The large sign up on the left hand side of the photograph advertises George J. Keller and his felines.

The second photograph for today is of the Disneyland Hotel tram (single car) dropping off guests at the main entrance. What a wonderful color scheme for the tram.

The second is of the Astro Jets in motion. This is once again from a different angle than normal. In the background can be seen the advertising "book" sign for the Skyway. I have included a close up of the sign but it is almost too far away...

The next two shots show the stadium and the large water track that was built. During the fair the track would host a speedboat and water ski show.
This last shot taken from the stadium shows the iconic space needle, the symbol for the fair.

The next photo is another view of the ride, showing the ride vehicles.
The final view for today is one of my favorites, Autopia style cars parked and waiting to be driven by happy youngsters.

The second view is one of the main attractions, feeding the semi tame deer.

The next photograph is a great shot of the Monorail over the Submarine Lagoon. I like the little girl peeking out of the window.
The final two photographs are group photographs. Based upon the clothing, I would say the party spent a couple of days at the park. I like finding these images as they really personalize the park experience for me. The photographs are truly a window back into time.

Although the front cover is nice, the back cover is fantastic with great 1950s illustration style art for the Submarine Voyage, Skyway, Autopia and Mad Tea Party. These illustrations are also used on a large size scrap book that was also sold in 1959.
The interior does feature a Walt Disney autograph (unfortunately printed, but still a nice touch.)

Once the family was over at TSI, they climbed Tom's tree house.
Finally they hiked over and climbed the stairs for a nice view of Fort Wilderness. Oh how I miss Fort Wilderness.

The second photograph shows Maui with a kid watching the water drop from the time keeper.
The final image for today shows Tangaroa the father of all gods and goddesses. I like the A-Frame in the back and the nice shade provided by the fabric overhead.
