Today I have a few more rescanned slides; when viewing the images as thumbnails, the difference is not readily apparent. But when you view the full-sized images, you can see that the color is better and the photos are clearer.
Just because, I decided to use two photos in which some massive Frontierland construction is underway. This first view was posted in 2007, and was kind of dark and drab.
The rescan improves things a little; it's certainly sharper. I really love this shot of the raft to Tom Sawyer Island, with Frontierland reduced to mounds of dirt, wood framing, and a few scraggly trees. (The slide is dated April, 1962).
This next one is also from 1962 (and originally posted in 2008). It's one of those slides that had turned an unpleasant shade of orangey-pink.
As you can see, I had previously cropped the square slide into something more resembling a 35mm slide. Now I'm including the complete image. It's hard to tell with that big sternwheeler in the way, but I think that this picture must have been taken roughly around the same time as the first one.
Zooming in to the left, we can see work trucks, while men dig in the foreground. I think we can just see the Monorail beamway in the background.
Over to the right, more vehicles are vislble, while the Disneyland Railroad passes by.
I hope you have enjoyed today's rescans!
