Computer Troubles, Now Fixed so I am Doing a Mega Post!

So my file transfer program decided to act up...but that is now fixed and I am doing a Mega Post to catch up with everything. First up is the May 1966 issue of the University of Disneyland Newsletter for employees. Some interesting articles announcing management changes, ten year anniversaries, doctor's notes and special events at the park.

Next up are some nice images of a couple of ships at Disneyland. First up is an overhead view from the Skyway of the Fantasyland Pirate Ship. The ship appears fairly empty so it must not have been lunch or dinner time. In the background is Skull Rock and Monstro and way in the background is it's a small world and a yellow Peoplemover.

A nice dusk shot of the Mark Twain heading away from the Rivers of America dock. The Haunted Mansion looks foreboding and there is a construction fence on the left side of the image...maybe for Pirates of the Caribbean?

The last image is a nice view of Cascade Peak and the Three Sisters Falls. Note that the photographer followed the suggestion of a Kodak Picture spot.

Computer troubles are so frustrating! Thanks for the mega post. I liked the mention (on the back of the newsletter) of how they gathered books and candy for men and women serving in Vietnam. And the color photos are swell.

I wonder if the real Captain Hook had a themed garbage can on the deck of the Jolly Roger.

Happy to see you back. I noted a couple folks listed that I worked with in the 70s, Gary Wakefield and Hank Flitz. Good times and great memories. KS
