Photo Class Assignment- Black and White Photograph

One of my favorite type of photographs to buy are from when people would take a photography class. This was either in High School or in College. Inevitably one of the assignments would be take some black and white photographs of someplace interesting. If the person was close to Disneyland, 8 times out of 10 they would go to Disneyland. Today's images date from the mid-1970's. The first shows the Popcorn cart on Main Street, more specifically Town Square. In the background is the Omnibus (which we shall soon see in close up) and The Walt Disney Story with Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln. I like the metal drip pan laid underneath the popcorn stand so the cooking oil does not mar the sidewalk. It looks like Disneyland just went to Pep Boys and purchased one.

The second photo was a mind blower for me. I love the signage on the side of the Omnibus, especially the Bear Country Jamboree sign. If you compare that to earlier images of the Omnibus, the Bear Country sign was added.

Wow, you're right about the sign on the Omnibus... I didn't think those ever changed!! Very cool that the CBJ is featured. I should pay more attention to them in various photos and see if the attractions (or their order) changes.
