I've got two vintage snapshots for you today... one goodie, and one oogie.
This first one is neat - a great closeup shot of the nose of the red Monorail. I can't decide if I'd rather have one of those seats right in front, or if I'd rather be up in the bubble dome with the driver. Maybe I'll take two trips and do both! But I'll have to wait until the next Monorail. Notice the Peoplemover in the background, on a downhill grade; the Magic Kingdom version of the Peoplemover is cool (and still exists), but I did like the way the Anaheim version was able to traverse track that was not dead flat.
OK, this one's not really "oogie", but it's not very exciting either. The Mickey Mouse flower portrait has been replanted recently and still needs to fill in. Notice the Santa Fe sign... they halted their sponsorship of the Disneyland Railroad sometime this year (1974). Boo.
