I threw some darts at my computer and selected two random photos for today's post.
Here's a somewhat different view of the Matterhorn, taken on the Main Street side of the Plaza Inn, circa August 1969. Yellow and white umbrellas always make me think of that restaurant. I wish we could see the menu board to the left more clearly. Tomorrowland palm trees juxtaposed against the snow-capped Matterhorn works just fine, thank you.
I like how the two teenagers in the foreground are dressed in a neat and tidy manner, while the two grown men to their left are considerably more casual.
I am always happy to see the wonderful Swiss Family Treehouse - what a feat of Imagineering! It is absolutely convincing as a real tree. I'm sure that every kid (and more than a few adults) wished they could live in an arboreal abode like this. Sturdy steps lead up to various rooms, each providing a more spectacular view of the park below, while the Rube Goldberg waterworks provide constant kinetic energy (and fresh water!).
