Teacups, July 1960

From a stereo slide, here's a classic scene...a great look at the Teacups, Carousel, and other bits of Fantasyland circa 1960. One of the teacups is out of commission (covered in a blue tarp), some nudnik spun it too fast! The swirly turntable is looking a bit dirty, but that is the inevitable effect of millions of sneakers. Still, it goes against the so-clean-you-can-eat-off-it image that Disneyland had, particularly back then.

Holy mackeral, look at the crowd in front of the Peter Pan was as crazy then as it is nowadays. It's one of my favorite Disneyland rides, but I can't bring myself to wait in the line if its over 30 minutes, and it is often much longer than that.
