Here are two nice pix from 1970, starting with this shot of the Disneyland Hotel as seen from the far reaches of the Disneyland parking lot. To the left is the Sierra Tower, originally built in 1962 (and no longer saying "Hotel Disneyland" since its expansion in 1966), while the Marina Tower is to our right (construction was completed earlier in 1970). You can just see the yellow Monorail through the oleanders.
Next is this nice view, taken from the Tomorrowland Monorail station. I love the beautiful turquoise lagoon, along with the original "nuclear" gray subs - and the Peoplemover of course. I always like this angle because it shows that little pool just above the tunnel and waterfall - doesn't it make you want to swim there?
