Disneyland in Slides - 1950's

Today's small batch of slides suffer from the "undated" syndrome but this great shot of Fantasyland makes up for it. Hey, where was this photo taken from, looks to be pretty high off the ground? Maybe it was taken from the Skyway Chalet, although it seems like it would be more over to the left.

This photo of the hub does reveal a clue that these are pretty old. You can see one of those sign's (in front of Tomorrowland) that shows a map of the land ahead, I don't know when they removed those, but it must have in the first couple years?

The Mickey planter is looking pretty bare and kinda dull.

Come back tomorrow for a visit to January 1967.

Tim - With those maps/signs and lack of a handcart at the train station, these are probably from 1956. Great images!

I always love the views showing the Skyway passing over the area where the Matterhorn would eventually be! Also love that orange tree (covered in fruit) in photo #2.

Its wonderful to see these, fun to taste history. But I must say, I do LOVE Disneyland of today, wish for a few of the lost attractions, but LOVE how Disneyland has grown up.
THANKS for sharing.
