Here are two more mid-1960's Instamatic photos...
I like this pretty shot of the Matterhorn through the branches of a tree (you can juuuust see the star atop the mountain). The light has an interesting quality here, not really sure why. We get a pretty good look at the Monsanto sign; the blue shape echoes the shape of the House of the Future in the background.
Standing in Town Square looking toward Main Street Station, we can see a sign on the steps telling us that the Disneyland Railroad isn't operating on this particular day. I think the train might have been closed while the early construction on the Haunted Mansion was going on - but it's hard to say for sure, since I don't have a specific date on any of the pictures in this batch.
