Disneyland Entrance, 1950's

Don't worry, your eyes aren't getting worse...this slide really is kind of blurry. But it's a great view of the entrance, with the cool old cars (love those red-rimmed white walls!). Don't you dare bring a picnic lunch inside the park, it is strictly verboten. They were probably afraid that the picanic baskets would attract pesky old bears (with green neckties).

To our left we can see the back end of a parking lot tram. There is a platform on the back...what could this be for?

Love this! This is the old days when you could park right in front of the ticket booths.

The platform is where the Parking Tram spieler stood with his microphone, leaning against that back bar, as the tram went zipping around the parking lot.

When those old sideway-facing trams were replaced with the modern fibreglass trams they were banished to the backstage areas, shuttling parade performers around between the dressing tents and step-off.
