A Child Visits Disneyland 1968 Part II

Two nice action images of the Tea Cup Party ride. In the first the photographer almost missed his subject.

The last image is from the same family, but is from a trip one year earlier...on everyone's favorite singing attraction.

The color is just super in these, both the Tea cups pics really pick up the mood, the tea cup floor (Saucer?) colors are excellent. .Nice post, thanks!

So, the little girl grew up - and didn't want to keep these happy memories with her family at Disneyland?

2x what VDT said on the color. And the composition on the first slide is excellent even with the little girl cut off.

Major: We don't know who these people are, whether they loved each other, how they died, or if they even wished to be remembered.

If you asked seller at the time of purchase, you would still never know the "real" reason why a person sells family photos, you would only know the story you were told.

When my grandfather died, we discovered his closets and drawers were all empty. He had disposed of his entire collection of photos and family documents going back to the 1880s.

Sometimes there is no asking "why".
