Here are two more slides that, as far as I can tell, were never posted before, even though their brethren were scanned and shared long ago.
The park must have just opened its gates; look at those long shadows coming from the east. And look at all that red, white and blue, all the way up the street! Empty chairs surround the flagpole, waiting for the Disneyland Band to come by and perform, while a gardener gets in some last-minute watering. I don't see a thing for the sweeper to sweep, but he's going to sweep it anyway. Otherwise his life would have no meaning.
We've moved up the street a bit, just past Town Square, with the Main Street Cinema on our right. The Tobacco Store Indian can just be seen, as well as the "GAF" logo (goodbye, Kodak). It's too bad that GAF film was prone to fading (the initials stood for Generally Awful Film).
Don't you think it's funny that they have to print the word "PUSH" on the trash cans, in case somebody doesn't know how they work? "I know trash goes in here somehow, but by golly, I can't figure this thing out".
