Here are two more scans from a series of construction photos taken by my friend "Mr. X" way back in 1966!
Wow, Disneyland really IS magical. Just look at that dirt! Just mix in some random broken pieces of pipe, concrete, and pixie dust, and churn it all up with some Caterpillar treads, and you can practically hear the Disney chorus from the 1950's singing in perfect harmony.
I am assuming that we are looking at the back of the "Circlevision" building (to the left), and that the Matterhorn would be more or less behind us?
This second photo gives more clues as to where Mr. X was in relation to other attractions, such as the Skyway and the Monorail. The "Carousel of Progress" building would be located more toward the Tomorrowland Skyway terminal, hidden in the distance.
I thought I would zoom in a bit so that you could see the work progressing on the Peoplemover track.
We're getting down to the last of this series!
