When I can, I like to try to post something a little better than usual on Fridays. I'm not sure if today's offerings qualify, but they're still pretty nice.
I love this view of Fantasyland, circa 1962. The vivid colors really pop! That blue sky, those reds, those yellows. There is nothing like a clear sunny day at Disneyland. Even the hues of the Skyway buckets are very pleasing.
How about those crowds? It looks pretty busy. The tented snack bar is doing gangbusters. Whatever that means. I am somewhat surprised that not a single souvenir hat is visible! How can this be? How could they resist the giant ostrich feathers, the mouse ears, the Civil War kepis, the Tyrolean hats?
It's hard to miss the bright yellow Monorail passing in the background....
Meanwhile, things don't change much over at Skull Rock and the Pirate Ship lagoon. Until 1982, that is. Somehow this feature still looks kind of new (with the plants and palm trees still appearing a bit scraggly), even though it debuted in 1960. As I've said over and over, I miss this lovely feature a lot.
