Main Street USA, July 1958

I sure love this image, with the Disneyland Band parading down Main Street on a bright sunny day. I wonder if the band did this at noon every day during the summer (it looks like the clock to the right says 12:00)? The guests are decked out in their finest 50's apparel, and I think I see more than one souvenir chapeau. Old Glory still only has 48 stars, too.

There's a couple having their photo taken as the band marches by...little did they know they were having two photos taken!

And you did not even mention the great lamp post sign advertising the Grand Canyon Diorama.

Not to mention the sign on the next lamp post advertising the Alice in Wonderland attraction!

Once again an Awsome Pic!! Love the large format both you and Matterhorn have been using lately. IT gives you a real feeling of being transported back to the "Golden Era". DD
