Here's a terrific photo of an Omnibus, taken as the guests disembark (and others wait to board). I love certain details, like the banner heralding the debut of the Grand Canyon Diorama ("Largest in the world), still one of my favorite things at Disneyland. Or how about the lady heading down the stairs, in her blue dress and pearls? Classy!
In the lower right you'll see this mother and her daughter; mom is carrying a souvenir brochure from the Monsanto Hall of Chemistry.
Here's a better look at the cover. These are pretty easy to come by now, but in the pre-ebay days they could fetch a chunk of change.
I see eight hats, and I'll bet seven of them were purchased at the park! They must have made a fortune from those things over the years. Who knew that souvenir hats would be so popular?
Next we have a beautiful shot of the C.K. Holliday as it pulls into Main Street Station. As usual, it is pulling the freight cars. I love the color in this photo, and even like the glimpse into the parking lot.
I will be out of town starting today; I'll check in when I can, but things will return to normal on Monday. Have a good weekend, everybody!
