Here are two bright, sunshiny photos from August 1959, mere weeks after the debut of the Mighty Matterhorn (among other things). Jolly stripes are the thing, from the sails of the Pirate Ship to the umbrellas, the Storybook Land ticket booth, and various tents. This elevated perspective was presumably taken from the Monorail.
I suppose it was almost inevitable that we would get a picture of the Matterhorn. Those blue banners were seen for a few months around its debut. Joe Football and Cindy Pepsquad make a great looking couple, don't they?
