After a hiatus, Photos In Wonderland is back today. Please help us welcome Rustin back.
As a brief refresher: here at PiW, we share a handful of photos on a common theme each column, largely focused on Disneyland, but with the possibility of some Knott’s, Universal, WDW, or other tourist attractions/roadside weirdness along with commentary.
Now, let’s get on with the show, shall we?
Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure outshines the clunky and boring old Sunshine Plaza in practically every way imaginable. It exudes class and charm. Let’s have a look around at some of my favorite details.
This sporty roadster is parked outside Oswald’s Service Station. Don’t try and drive off with her, though – Office Blue is watching!
Tasty candies fill the display window across the street at Trolley Treats.
A community display board offers helpful notices inside the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe. That ‘I. Crane’ offering tutoring services sounds familiar – doubtless recently moved to the area from the Upper Hudson region of New York.
All the news of the town is on-hand for local residents and tourists stopping by.
Notable literary classics await book enthusiasts. But you can’t buy them, they are just for display.
Sweeping art deco lines and flourishes dominate this side of the street – let’s duck inside the classy Elias & Co. and peek at the detail work, what do you say?
Quite lovely lighting fixtures – but imagine the electrical bill!
Even ‘simple’ display racks get the classic treatment here.
And one of my favorite details, the lunar-themed lighting fixture directly overhead near the exit.
