Oh yaz, oh yaz, it's time for some more vintage Instamatics!
We'll start with this pretty awesome picture of the old Aunt Jemima restaurant over in Frontierland. I could eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so this would still be a favorite of mine if it was around today; judging by the number of people, it was pretty popular back then, too. Does anybody know if guests could eat in the upstairs area visible in this photo?
Wowzers, look at all of the people on the Columbia. That must have been on one of the days where they gave away free cigarettes or something (that happened, right?). Old Glory waves inspiringly from the stern, while the Swiss Family Treehouse (with its red leaves) is right behind us. And hey, there's Aunt Jemima's restaurant, with the turquoise umbrellas.
Guess what I've never done? Well sure, I've never done that, but I've also never been inside Disneyland's City Hall. Not even to get one of those "It's My Birthday" pins, or to complain, or to demand the return of the Haunted Shack over at Knott's. Maybe if I had an annual pass I would take the time, but I'm always in too much of a hurry.
