It's a Hub, it's a Plaza... it's two thingies in one! After your walk up Main Street U.S.A., you are presented with a dilemma - where to go next. Do I want to see the World of Tomorrow? Brave the wilderness? Step into a land of fantasy? Give me a minute.
I like this first view of Sleeping Beauty Castle (circa 1972), seen from the site of the "Partners" statue, more or less. I can almost imagine stepping into this scene, with the sights and sounds (and smells) of a warm July day.
The fashions aren't quite as crazy as one might expect for 1972. Subdued colors, for the most part, and where are those hippies? Hiding, I'll bet. Always hiding.
Next is this shot from 1966, with two sisters posing in front of a Horse Drawn Streetcar. The youngest has a stylish "Moe" haircut. The girl to the extreme right had better be careful... that green balloon might just get away from her, since she's not holding the string. It happened to me, and I'm still scarred by the experience.
