Hey folks! Once again, Photobucket (my horrible photo host) is "down for maintenance". Or is it just plain "down"? What's the difference? It's getting ridiculous. Here are some rules to live by: Love your children. Get plenty of sleep. Never use Photobucket ever ever ever.
I have a nice bunch of Kodachrome slides from 1957, following a family as they explored the Disneyland on a beautiful day. Dad did all the picture taking apparently; we see Mom, and two boys.
Man oh man, that kid has gone HOLLYWOOD! How often do you see a 12 year old (?) boy in a jacket and pressed slacks? Dapper day indeed. I've never looked this cool in my life. Meanwhile, in the background is a wonderful shot of an Omnibus, jam-packed (and lot of other people waiting for the next one).
There he is again. I'm not so sure about the blue pants, but he's still pretty slick. I love the sign for the Horseless Carriages: "Ride the Ultimate in Luxurious Motor Cars". Don't mind if I do. A gaggle of Girl Scouts awaits the next Horse Drawn Streetcar.
