Today I am sharing the first of about 20 vintage glass slides featuring Disneyland circa 1956. They have all turned pink to some degree, so I had to do a bit of restoration in an attempt to bring them back to life.
First up is this nice child's-eye view of Sleeping Beauty Castle; considering how colorful the castle has become, it might be surprising to see it looking like it was made from granite and slate instead of candy. The people add great 50's quality to the scene.
Even with the Teacups at a standstill, the photographer couldn't manage a clear shot! I've always been fond of those loopy decorations on some of the cups.
