I guess I can't put it off any longer… today I am posting the last 3 images from a set of stereo slides from the early 1970's. They were fun while they lasted!
Here's a busy scene taken on the western edge of the hub, watched over by papa Matterhorn. Speaking of papas, that guy in the green shirt and his wife (I'm assuming that's her in the yellow top) has four boys, which exhausts me just thinking about it. There might be a baby in that stroller too. Yikes. Notice the sign for the GAF Picture Trail… General Aniline & Film took over from Kodak, and things haven't been the same since. You also get the blue Peoplemover train, and the funky fountains just beneath it.
Dad loves his groovy shirt, and he loves horse-drawn trolleys too. The horse is guided by a small transistor planted inside his medulla. This also provides soothing AM radio to pass the time. He particularly enjoys the Carpenters.
Here's another nice scene, this time way down near the old Bank of America (to our right), with the Opera House and Hills Bros Coffee Garden visible in the background. Dad is carrying a popcorn box with a familiar design. Could that couple already be leaving? It's still broad daylight!
