1962 Trip Part 1

A trip to Disneyland in 1962 captured in color snapshots. First up is a nice image of Monstro. I wonder where are all the guests?

Next up is the Submarine Voyage with the swooping Monorail track overhead. The photographer used typed file labels to document the photographs. Make sure you note the Submarine.

The obligatory Sleeping Beauty Castle picture.

A nice image from the Skyway heading towards Matterhorn.

He wouldn't have had to write that if the submarine were bright yellow.

While taking "notice" of the "Subramarine" at "Disney-Land", I noticed some neato light fixtures on the Monorail-beam, never noticed those before.

"Sky-Chairs" giggle word of the day...

Obviously written by an well-meaning, obsessive-compulsive, older librarian-type lady who invented the hypen, the M-dash, and the N-dash.

She collects a royalty each time the afore-mentioned punctuation is used. I figure I've gone though about 75 cents worth on this post alone. Lucky I didn't have to use a tilde.

VDT: I'm pretty sure that if you look at the present-day (sorry) beam at Disneyland, you can see the cover plates where those lights used to be.

BTW, I never knew that the beam and the pylons were both painted light gray!
