Steve says: "Once again, it's De De and me - this time posing in front of the floral Mickey. And I'm certain that we're all thinking the same thing: if only my dad had widened-out the image, we could capture many an attraction poster appended to the fencing. Oh well, this is what happens when attention to your subject is front and center, and to hell with Disneyland history! Who knew - it was only 1958, after all. Oh, to be there again, knowing what I know now...".
Oh boy, look at this one! More from Steve: "Although I have a number of images of the Richfield Junior Autopia - whoops, make that 'Jr. Autopia' from this same angle, this is the only one I've seen with my mom and myself! (And look kids - NO CENTER RAIL!). As an added bonus, we can spy the Fantasyland Viewliner Station, the Motor Boat Cruise and even a pay phone booth (no need to worry about cell phone coverage here!). And looking carefully along the scalloped fence, the gentleman with the gray shirt is holding what at first I thought was an 'Official Disneyland Road Map' - 'courtesy of your helpful Richfield Dealer', but it doesn't match any of the maps I have. So... what could it be?".
"In about six months, the Jr. Autopia would be no more, as it would be 'removed' to make way for the Matterhorn, Disneyland-Alweg Monorail, and the new Fantasyland Autopia".
