Plaza Gardens, 12-29-56

The Plaza Gardens looks busy in this photo from December, 1956. It must be lunch time, although the long shadows and bright crisp sunshine look more like morning to me. For those of you digging out of blizzards (!), take a look at that young photographer...he appears to be pretty comfortable in jeans and a short-sleeved shirt! If the Christmas tree wasn't in the picture, you'd never guess that it was almost January.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the readers of this blog for your support and interest...there wouldn't be any point in doing this if folks didn't care! And for those of you who comment regularly (you know who you are!), I offer a special thanks. I love learning more about the photos that are posted, and always appreciate the compliments. This blog will continue until I run out of slides worth sharing...I am hoping to make it to the one year mark, at least! But until then, be sure to keep checking in for more stuff. I plan on running a few more non-Disney images in the future, but never fear, it'll still be fun!

Have a safe and happy holiday, everyone!

Oh the joys of a flocked Christmas Tree! I remember my dog's beard being full of that stuff when I was a little kid. Nice shot, Major!

Very nice shot! And I am jealous of the person in their short sleeve shirt!
