Here are two so-so photos from 1970! Let's begin with this image, shot from the queue to It's a Small World. We're near the "Picture Spot" sign, so you know that it's legit. It wouldn't be long before GAF replaced Kodak as the official film of Disneyland, and all of the Picture Spot signs would be changed to reflect that fact. One of the first things I notice (besides gramps giving us the eyeball) is the trees atop the Small World building. The teen boy in front of us hangs his head wearily at the thought of hearing that song soon. Hey, I like that song!
This is an odd photo... was this really such an inspiring view that the photographer needed to use a precious frame of film? Maybe he was a fan of folding chairs. Who isn't! The Tomorrowland Stage is out of frame to our left, the Carousel of Progress to our right, we can see a rare view of the back side of Rolly Crump's ticket booth, and we can even see the Skyway and Peoplemover.
