A message for all of you who are planning on taking photos in 1958… don't bother unless you have plenty of sunlight! If you do, your results will resemble today's murky offerings.
I wanted to include this one because, even in its shadowy form, it's kind of neat, with the Skyway chalet (before the trees around it got so big) and the bucket overhead. As I write this, the chalet is still in Disneyland, but it is slated for removal. It's a bit of a bummer, but you can hardly see it behind all of the overgrown trees - I'm sure most people walk right past it and don't even know it's there. Hopefully there are plans to replace it with something useful and or beautiful. The dude near the light pole has one of those classic popcorn boxes in hand.
And now, a picture even murkier and McGurkier! It was taken from the Skyway as it passed over Holiday Hill (soon to be the site of the Matterhorn). Down below is the new Monsanto Plastic Home of the Future, and some bits of Main Street USA.
