Today's images aren't that exciting, but at least they're pretty. They are from a lot of 1958 photos taken by somebody who had a good "photographer's eye". I have deemed this first one to be postcard worthy. Look at how un-pink the castle is! Sure, there's a little bit, but it is very subtle.
That little fence between the flowers and the moat is just tall enough to trip over (if you're really clumsy) - which makes me wonder, has anybody ever fallen into the moat? Also, you can see to the right, there is a hill instead of a Swiss mountain. Another detail.... see those little shields on all of the cloth banners?
In this closer view (not a zoom-in on the previous slide!) you can discern that they are signs heralding the opening of the new "Alice in Wonderland" dark ride, which debuted on June 14th, 1958. I love that ride!
