It's time for more greatest hits! Today we will get no further than the parking lot.
This first one was originally posted way back in 2006, and shows a nice July 1958 photo of some cool old automobiles, with the Disneyland Railroad chugging in to Main Street Station. There are some ticket booths, and the Opera House is clearly visible.
Here's another one that was posted in 2006 (in December), with a neat, moody shot looking toward the entrance (in an undated slide). It's funny, the sky looks like it is blue, with lots of white fluffy clouds, and yet it looks so dark here, for some reason. Meanwhile, the foreground cars and all of Main Street are in bright sunshine. It's a neat effect.
This one was originally published in 2008, and shows a 1957 view with a gray sky. It seems so strange now to see cars right up to the entrance. Lemon-yellow must have been a new, daring color for autos at that time. It's fun to see the families (bundled up, California-style)… imagine how exciting it must have been for them!
