    Images of Disneyland 1961

    While going through some old boxes of photos recently, I came across these images of Disneyland in 1961. If anyone has Photoshop, please feel free to enhance them.



    I can not imagine the line to get tickets into the park to be this short now adays.





    I can tell its a sign from the old Indian Village, but for the life of me I can't figure out what it says.




    The Indian Village as seen from the front of the Mark Twain...



    This one is NOT from Disneyland, but from Knotts in 1961. Interesting to see how much it has grown since then.



    I have more images in other boxes. I'll post more as I come across them.

    EO: You should adjust them a bit further... they can still get a lot better and a lot cleaner. They've also become too small in comparison to the originals.

    Well, I just did a quick 10min touch up to make the details and colors a bit better. The sizes have been fixed though!

    Touching it up, I can now somewhat make out what the sign is in the indian village. It looks like it's for the burial ground.
