Next up is a great view of the seldom seen Seal Pool. Quite a crowd at the pool to feed the seals. I like the fountains for the seals on the rocks.
The next image shows the two kids sitting in front of the old prospector at the entrance. I like the Ghost Town sign in the background.
The next image shows more detail of the village. The photographer quickly took this photo to get a nice view of the village between the two images.
Next up is a shot of the roof from the Administration building. I like the color of the roof at this time.
The last image is of the concrete crew pouring concrete (what else!) The crew has a lot of work to accomplish.
A post from years ago is this sign from the attraction. I believe this was at the exit.
The second image shows the same group visiting a petting zoo at the Pike. Check out the airplane ride in the background.
Next image from 1949 is the winner of the Easter egg hunt. I can't decide what I like better, the brand new wagon in the box or the two cute bunnies and one very frightening bunny.
The next image is of the old mill on Tom Sawyer's Island. This is one of my favorite less visited spots in the park. I love watching the wheel and the grinding mechanism on the inside of the mill. Both of these elements are part of the Disneyland waterways and help to aerate the water keeping it clear of growth.
The next image shows a nice view of the C.K. Holliday pulling the excursion train through the forests of Frontierland. The bright red color of the engine and tender show nicely in the image.
The photographer was very daring, attempting to snap images of the attacking hippos on the Jungle River Cruise. First photograph is of the hippo preparing to attack.
Next image is of the attacking hippo.
Next is my favorite part of Santa's Village is the North Pole. Basically a frozen pole kids could touch and say they had seen the North Pole. Note the elf on top of the pole.
Final image is of the Fire Engine that kid's could climb on and imagine they were responding to a call.
Next up is not Disneyland related, but still a great image of how pervasive Disney merchandising has been throughout the years. On Halloween, little girls could dress as their favorite princess and go out trick or treating.
The second view is a broader view of the construction site with many construction vehicles on the site.
The next image is a great image of the dirt work required for the attraction. I like the background with the Matterhorn and Rocket Jets in the background.
