While looking through boxes of previously-scanned slides, I found these two images (undated) that had never been scanned. I don't know if it was just an oversight, or if I thought that they were too boring at the time. The color was fine, so that wasn't why I skipped them. Whatever the case was, I like them now!
I'm guessing that this nice couple was brought to the park by their grown up kid (a daughter, I'd wager). Who not go to the Happiest Place on Earth? Of course a photo had to be taken in front of the Mickey floral portrait. Bonus points for the yellow passenger cars of the Disneyland Railroad in the background, not to mention the Kalamazoo Hand Car.
We can just see that it is around 10:20 - the park probably opened at 10 o'clock, so there was plenty of time to do everything.
I'll bet those two were childhood sweethearts! They hadn't gone very far before it was time for another portrait, this time in Town Square. There's lots of fun details, the popcorn wagon, the cannon, the Streetcar, and even the distinctive white metal chairs from the Hills Bros. Coffee House.
