Today's photos are not the most amazing things in the world, but they have some interesting details.
This first one is just odd; I'm not sure what possessed the photographer to want to capture the scene for posterity, and yet... I'm glad he did. It looks like we're looking East across South Walnut Street, with Disneyland's vast parking lot just beyond those scraggly trees.
Zooming in, we can see the entrance to Holidayland to the left. Near the center of the photo you can just see the top of the Moonliner, while the Opera House is visible next to the telephone pole. Oh, and there is a tram in the parking lot too.
Next is this shot of Town Square; did any real town square ever look so neat and tidy?
I wanted to get a better look at the people. My god, that woman to the left is wearing pants! What is this country coming to? Behind the flagpole is the mostly-obscured "Liberty Street" façade. Notice the banner spanning Main Street, advertising the Grand Canyon Diorama, the new Alice in Wonderland attraction, and the Columbia.
