From “Disneyland U.S.A.” and “People and Places” 1956 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!
