Disneyland U.S.A. - 1956

From “Disneyland U.S.A.” and “People and Places1956 Technicolor production, here’s a black and white publicity photo. If you haven’t seen this amazing film, it’s on the “Walt Disney Treasures - Disneyland: Secrets, Stories & Magic” DVD (review link). I scanned the photo in color and black & white. I know, it’s a black & white photo. It either has shifted/faded or it’s was in sepia tone. Either way, you get both versions.









Speaking of shifting and fading of colors, this 1956 Mark Twain ticket I recently acquired looked to be a new color when I first got it. However when compare to a “pink” version I’ve previously posted, I’m pretty convinced this new one is just a faded pink one. It needs a fancy color name like “roasted salmon”.









Also from 1956 another black and white photo, this time of Autopia and a lone (and empty) Skyway bucket above. A couple things of note; the man behind the trash can with the camera around his neck (let’s call him Bruno) looks very scary, watch your children. And I really like the fact the covered area was for spectators. The Florida version of Autopia has a large “Grand Stand” area. The current Disneyland version looks like it has seating, but its just more of the line!

You need to talk to Crayola about registering "Roasted Salmon"!

Hmmm, maybe that ticket is a faded brown version?

"Disneyland U.S.A." is amazing, the crisp clear picture and vibrant colors are a dream come true for vintage Disneyland fans.
