Frontierland and Main Street, 1970

Here are two more slides from 1970. First up we have a view of the Indian Dance Circle. At some point, bleachers were built...before that, folks stood wherever they could find a space. Now they had seats and shade! That was nice, although you would lose some of the intimacy of being so close to the performers. There were still a few seats right down next to the action for those who got there early!

Next is a photo taken from the top of the Omnibus (who would ever want to sit on the bottom level?). We're looking back towards "Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln" (sponsored by Lincoln Savings), as well as the Wonderland Music Store, the Mad Hatter hat shop, and the Hills Bros. Coffee Garden. Look at all the people headed for the Lincoln attraction!

Completely forgot about the great Lincoln head penny over the entrance to Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. What a flashback. As Tangaroa said, the Disneyland of my youth.

Hey David - Could you get the lady with the big bouffant to move over a bit? Great shot with the canopy overhead! I read the other day that Mr. Lincoln IS returning...hopefully that is true. I've had enough of Steve Martin.

My mom had a bouffant like that back then. Later she transitioned to the always-popular curly perm!

I want Lincoln to come back, but I have still not had a chance to see the Steve Martin movie...and I want to! The people I go to the park with always veto that one.
