Christmas On Main Street

With Denver receiving more snow and Orange County having a hale storm that looked like snow, I am in a Christmas Holiday mood. These two images are from January 1958 according to the handwritten information on the box of slides. First up is a nice view of Main Street with all the pedestrians walking or posing on the sidewalks. I really like the two boys posing in blue on the corner. It appears there was a recent Southern California rainstorm.

The second image shows the Disneyland band marching down Main Street. The fire wagon has pulled off Main Street and is parked on East Center Street.

I like the one with the band, but there's something about that first photo… the almost-empty street beckons! The simple Christmas decor feels more like a real Main Street (adding to the illusion that I think Walt was going for), and not like an amusement park that's trying too hard.
