Before we get to today's post, I want to congratulate Matterhorn1959 on becoming a father! Some of you were already aware of this wonderful news, but for those of you who didn't know, why not go to his blog and send him some good wishes?!
Here are two bright, colorful photos from the summer of '63; we'll start with this shot from just outside the west tunnel entrance to Town Square. The C.K. Holliday is passing overhead, pulling the combine (which can now be seen on display in Griffith Park). Shouldn't it be pulling the freight cars?
I zoomed in hoping to see what was on that street-level billboard in the middle. It looks like there are 2 faces, but I couldn't discern who they were; checking IMDB to see what Disney movies were released that year didn't help much. It might be an advertisement for "Savage Sam" or "Summer Magic", or it could be something entirely different!
After walking the complete length of Main Street, we get to the castle of course. Watch out ladies, without a railing, you might fall into the moat! It's never happened in 60 years, but you can never be too careful.
