I am very happy to present the first of several posts from a longtime GDB friend. His name is Peter, but you know him from the comments as DrGoat (named after a 1950 Whitman children's book that was illustrated by Peter's uncle - it is still beloved by many to this day); he will be sharing 17 photos from various years - Disneyland and one Knott's Berry Farm. I think you're going to enjoy them!
Here's DrGoat: ... The first is me (Peter) and my Dad Aldo, 1960, July. I wish I remembered more, but I do remember we stayed at the Peter Pan Motel, spend 2 whole days there, which was a treat since we drove from Tucson and got a day at the San Diego Zoo, a day at the beach, a day at Marineland and usually a day at Disneyland and one at Knotts. We actually did 2 days at Disneyland and skipped a beach day which was fine with us.
Wow, what a vacation!
Next is this nice shot of the Flower Market, with some of DrGoat's family:
The second pic is the same day or the next day looking at flowers in the New Orleans Square area My Mom Mary, her sister Louise, and Dad. Us pretending we were interested in the flowers (my sister Christine and I) but really thinking about the rest of the park.
MANY THANKS to DrGoat for sharing... there are more to come!
