Adventureland Entrance

Looking like a schoolgirl carrying her books to school, this guest was photographed at the entrance of Adventureland in 1958. The first view is of the back of the elephant tusk arch looking out towards the central plaza. The large shrunken (I guess that is an oxymoron!) is facing towards the camera and into Adventureland.

The second image shows the shields and skulls used to decorate the entrance and set the mood for the land and the adventures awaiting guests. It looks like the item she is carrying is a 1958 Disneyland guide book.

She looks so demure. And yet she folded her guidebook in half, which is the act of a crazy person!
