Photographs from 42 Years Ago

A select grouping of photographs from a visit 42 years ago this month. This time period was a golden age for Disneyland with the recently opened Pirates of the Caribbean as well as the New Tomorrowland. However, the photographer opted to take pictures of some of the older attractions. First up is a group of hipsters riding It's A Small World. Check out the fedoras and sunglasses.

My favorite shot of this group is this head on view of the Omnibus.

A nice moody shot of the Mark Twain and the Rivers of America.

Sleeping Beauty Castle with Christmas decorations still up. It appeared this was a nice Southern California winter day...clear and sunny.
