Alice In Wonderland, March 23, 1960


There is a big smile on the face of the woman riding in the caterpillar with the young boy (her grandson?). I can't help but think of my own grandmother and the wonderful times that we had at Disneyland...both of my grandparents were responsible for my first trips to the park. They even had some extremely brief home movie footage of Main Street from 1955 (the quality isn't so hot, unfortunately).

I love the Mary Blair leaves surrounding pathway, her colorful artwork really defined the look of Disney animated films for so many years that it feels right at home in Disneyland.

Major- my best memories are with my grandparents as well. They were the ones who would foot the bill when all 9 of us cousins plus my mom and my aunt would go to Disneyland. Thanks for the nice memories and of course for a great view.
