A few weeks ago I acquired today's fun images of a Disneyland cast member, circa 1974. As we can see from her tag, her name was "Karin". After doing a bit of research and asking friends in the know, I think that Karin worked in Fantasyland for "Outdoor Foods" (ice cream/popcorn). You might recall the many photos of costumed employees that were posted here on GDB (graciously provided by Huck Caton); this is a nice addition to that record. Styles had certainly changed by this time... that multicolored bumblebee pattern is all kinds of 1974 awesome.
Here's Karin again; there's the Fantasyland Autopia in the background (that familiar fencing is barely visible). To her right (our left) is a Monorail pylon.
What are the odds that Karin, or somebody that knew her, could see these photos? It would be cool to hear from her!
