It's time for some more great Disneyland images from Steve Stuart's family photos! What a wonderful record of what can only have been very happy times for Steve. Here he is with some commentary:
BACK TO 1962 DISNEYLAND:
Here’s Gary [editor's note: you remember Gary! See him at this post] with his dad, sitting next to my mom. And sitting next to them is a bearded guest, intently thumbing-through what I believe to be a 1960 or 1961 guidebook. (Let’s just say the back cover is definitely from the guidebook with a 1960 copyright – although the front cover appears to resemble something else). So maybe it’s not a guidebook at all… Unfortunately, the center “column” of the Astro-Jets is doing a terrific job of obscuring a nice view of the base of the Moonliner. Oh well.
Another editor's note - that's me! I think that the bearded gentleman might be looking at a 1962 guide book, though the front cover looks too dark. It's just hard to tell. just to the right of his guidebook we can see one of those squeaky Donald Duck hats in a stroller.
Evidently standing on the Stephens-Adamson Speed Ramp as it moves up to the Tomorrowland Monorail loading platform, is my mom and me, in a rather sweet pose.
Many MANY thanks to Steve for sharing these fun photos!
