I like this first view of the east side of Main Street U.S.A. because the place is so deserted! Judging from the clock, it is just past 1:30 in the afternoon, but people seem to be as scarce as hen's teeth. Keep in mind that attendance on this March day never exceeded 4,000, which is ridiculous. Once again I'd like to point out the wonderful variety of façades. Anaheim's Main Street feels prosperous and clean, but not completely out of the realm of possibility. When visiting relatives in Minnesota and Wisconsin, I would often pass through small towns with their own little Main Streets - many which had seen better days, but still - I couldn't help thinking of Disneyland's version.
Up by the hub, the Horse Drawn Streetcar begins its trek back down toward Main Street Station. The driver looks so lonely and mournful! Notice the Monsanto House of the Future just visible through the trees.
