1997. A time before we had telephones or airplanes or Pringles. A time when early humans communicated through a series of grunts and crude gestures. A time when... oh, 1997! Jeez, that was only 20 years ago. For some reason I was thinking 2,001,997 BC. Happens all the time.
Anyhoo, good ol' "Mr. X" has allowed me to scan more of his personal Disneyland photos. These aren't very "vintage", but they sure are pretty. And it is surprising just how much a lot of the park has changed in those two decades.
Look at this nice shot as the old Firetruck chugs past the old Plaza Gardens. Did I mention they were old? The landscaping sure is nice. Of course the Plaza Gardens became the "Fantasy Faire" in 2013.
Mr. X might have just pivoted to his right to take this photo of Horse Drawn Streetcar as it waits for more passengers in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. The "Partners" statue would have been right behind him.
I hope you don't mind these not-so-old Disneyland photos once in a while!
