Here are the last of some old slides from the 1950's that had turned magenta; I've done my best to make them presentable to you.
Two nice ladies (I can just tell that they're nice!) relax on one of the ornate, painted cast-iron benches that used to be found in Fantasyland. Just behind them is a Monorail pillar (this is October 1959, so it all checks out!), and even further back you would find the Midget Autopia. As always, the shrubs and flowers help to make the park look pretty.
This next one was taken from the steps up to the Fantasyland Skyway chalet (circa 1956), a vantage point that provided a nice elevated view of Casey Jr., the Skyway, and even the Pirate Ship.
