Today I am sharing two images that I thought I'd shared before... but I've looked and looked and can't find them on GDB. Maybe I rejected them at the last minute, but that is hard to believe. If they are there, I know that you guys will find them in no time! But the slides were still worth rescanning and revisiting.
I particularly like this beautiful twilight photo of the entry turnstiles and Main Street Station. The clock tells us that it was 7:40, so this must have been in the summer, or thereabouts. It probably wouldn't truly be dark until 9 o'clock - fireworks time! Anyway, this one just has a great mood, and unusual color. I don't have anything else like it!
This next one is from 1958, and is a great look at Fantasyland as seen from the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship. The color is a bit faded, but there is still plenty of stuff going on to keep things interesting. Some details that I enjoy: the Skyway bucket in the upper right; the people on those funky oval benches; the guy pushing the cart full of... something mysterious. And I love the variety of patterns on the flat dark ride façades.
