This 'N That

Occasionally I find that I've scanned some slides that don't quite merit their very own post on this blog, but I still want to share the images with people who might enjoy them anyway. Here are four images that fell into that category. I guess.

First up is a nice early shot of the Disneyland Band in their spiffy blue uniforms. It looks as if they've just emerged from a backstage area...or maybe they are just keeping out of the way of the Main Street traffic. It's hard to tell, but it doesn't look like Vesey Walker is leading the band on this particular day.


Next is a nice photo of three folks standing in front of Monstro. They look like they are about to be chomped! The gentleman is holding the tickets for their upcoming ride (I think), and he's loaded with clunky camera equipment.


The third photo is from July, 1966. The Monsanto House of the Future has only about a year left until it meets the wrecking ball (or hacksaws if you believe the stories).


And finally, here's a kind of different angle of Skull Rock...you can see the cave-like entrance to the dining area to the right. I love the use of waterfalls to add movement and even a bit of ambient sound (use your imagination!).

One of the most wonderful things about your fist picture in this post is that if you look really closely, you'll notice the building to the right doesn't have any lights surrounding its border. I've been looking for pictures just like this! Thank you so much for posting the older pictures of Disneyland! ºoº
