A Visit to Disneyland 1969

What I am calling a set of shaky slides, although the first one is really the only shaky one in the group. The slide is the typical pose in the fore court of Sleeping Beauty Castle. The colorful banners on the moat bridge make for a nice colorful scene.

Next up is a nice shot of the lady being the last guest to debark the Mark Twain. Note the lovely trash can in the fore ground.

The last image is very mod with the it's a small world facade. I never realized how mod the design was until I saw this image with the older ladies in their great 1960s dresses.

I love the mod design. The facade of "it's a small world" and the architecture of Tomorrowland '67 looked very similiar.

The 1960s was my favorite era for design at Disneyland with attractions like these as well as the Enchanted Tiki Room and the Haunted Mansion.

K, of course all of the above had the artistic influence of the great Mr. Rolly Crump! He's got a new biography out that I'm almost finished with, and now I'm an even bigger fan of him! Check it out if you can!

Hannahx2 - I received the Rolly Crump book about a week ago. I'm going to read it over the holidays. Thanks for the recommendation.
