Happy Friday, everyone! Prepare to have your mind blown: even though it is Friday where you and I live, it is always TOMORROW in this little piece of Anaheim. DUH DUH DUUHNNN! (It was the music that really sold it).
This first photo is not an especially rare view, but (to me) it is still awesome. I have made no secret of the fact that T-land is my favorite, and while I grew up with the 1967-ish version, my fascination with the pre-67 version seems to be just about endless. So… this photo from the Hub looking toward the entrance makes me feel as if I could almost walk forward, cross the street (avoid getting hit by the Omnibus), and walk past the Avenue of Flags into the land o' Tomorrow. I would want to visit every little exhibit, souvenir stand, restaurant, and yes, even the bathrooms. And I would have my good camera with 20 boxes of Kodachrome film! Who wants to come along?
Fun details in this pic include the boys and mother (or grandmother?) posing, the lone member of the Disneyland Band passing by, and the orange trees full of fruit.
Did you know that the guys who installed the Moonliner were all descendants of the people who built the campanile in Pisa? It's true because here it is on the Internet. Seeing is believing!
Note: I will be out of town for the holiday weekend, but will try to check in regularly to respond to comments. Keep checking in, there will be new posts every day!
