This last image was also in the group. I love that the main subject is handing a ticket to the photographer. You can see the trestle in the background as found at the Del Mar fairgrounds.
Sorry about the color of the slide, the original was awash in red.
Next up is a nice posed image of two ladies standing in front of the shiny new at the time Matterhorn. The saddle purse bag was quite the in fashion at the time.
Next up is the wood products building...a fantastic building made out of wood. I love the foliage and all the landscaping.
Another of my favorite slides is this one of the IBM pavilion. The large glass and steel structure with the cantilevered roof and the fun bubble shaped trams.
Final image is of the United Nations building with the Atomium in the background. At this time, the United Nations was very prominent with many activities including UNICEF, refugee welfare and several police actions across the World.
Family is getting closer to the ride.
Finally there, have a fun trip.
Now we move to the Major's favorite....the Indian Village dance stage. Luckily our intrepid photographer managed to capture the majestic Mark Twain.
And for a little luck, Leprachauns from It's A Small World.
Next up is a crooked image of the Matterhorn....do not try to adjust your screen as the pictures is slightly tilted.
A nice view from the Monorail of the new additions to Disneyland in 1959.
Final image from the Monorail showing the jumper cables of Tomorrow.
Next up is the wedding cake ship (the Mark Twain) coming in to the same dock, but not at the same time as the Columbia. Nice scenic elements and composition in this shot with the buildings from Tom Sawyer Island in the foreground.
A busy view of the river with the Golden Horseshoe in the background. The raft is leaving from the original dock on the island, which is now approximately the Fantasmic stage today.
Final image is of the Mark Twain again, but the interesting part of the image is the dock. This is the dock that offered fishing and you can see the bamboo poles leaning on the shack on the left hand side.
Included with the lot of material with the Snow White postcard was this clipping dated 43 years ago from a local Orange County newspaper. The clipping reports on the opening of Ken-L-Land the day before.
