Today I have two square-format slides from 1966, taken on a gray day. I get so used to seeing sunny days at the park that it is a bit odd to see it so wintry, with guests wearing coats and sweaters.
We'll start with this shot taken from the steps of the train station, looking north on Main Street. A handsome horse waits patiently as passengers unload from their Streetcar. A banner welcomes members of the U.S. Air Force.
After heading up Main Street, we've reached the Plaza. Say, it looks like there are three fly-boys in front of us. Thanks for your service, fellas! Babushka alert (not on the airmen). Am I seeing things, or are there climbers on the Matterhorn? I think I spy two red dots toward the top. Notice the yellow, peaked roof of the little souvenir stand, and an Omnibus hiding to our left.
