Matterhorn Hat

Some black and white snapshots from 1961. First up is an unfortunately posed photograph of the young boy wearing the Matterhorn as a hat. Check out the nice background items and the camera he is carrying.

Next up is a nice side shot of Main Street Station with the attraction posters on the fence. Look at the great Nature's Wonderland and the rare Flying Saucers posters.

A great image of the Carnation truck with the background, showing where the truck was parked. Most images of this are shot from a straight on view so you can not see the shops next door to Carnation.

Last image is a you are there, waiting in line for the Flying Saucers shot. I am still really liking the pylon with the Flying Saucers sign.
