    I think the mermaids are awesome. Its things like this (and the real Native Americans) that make, sorry made Disney parks special and wonderful places. Its the little touchs that do it for me.

(I believe that's the number -- after over 100 years of production, Kodak discontinued the film in the early 80s, but 120 film can be used with minor modification.)

    The third Small World picture was not taken at the same time as the others and with most likely a different camera (or possibly at a different photo lab).
    They were taken in 68 but developed in early 69. There is writing on the back of them telling when they were taken and what they are of. The black and white Small World picture I don't think was taken in 68, but earlier, but there was nothing written on the back of it to identify it. I found it in a bundle with all these other images.

    Re: Disneyland 1968

    thanks SO MUCH for the wonderful vintage shots! I wish I had been around back then. Oh, the things we missed!

    But heck I wish I'd taken more shots when I visited in the 80's and 90's!!!

    That photo's not in black and white... it's a colour photo. It's only faded.

    Those photos were taken using 126 film, which came in a cartridge and fit into a small snapshot-type camera. I had one when I was a kid, and all my pictures look like those - square, with the date on the margin. The camera was the equivalent of the cheap 35 mm snapshot cameras today, and about the same size and shape.

    All I can tell you is that its before my time, If its not B&W, then yes, its badly faded, its before 1970, and its of the happiest place on earth.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Couple other things.... it appears that there was something stuck on the lens, probably during printing. The same "hair" appears in several of the photos.

    I'm also convinced that it was a box camera or a TLR camera. Many of the pictures were taken at a level of the waist to just below the neck. The biggest evidence is in the two pictures that he took seated at the tables. The arm is resting on the table. The camera would've been not too far off of the table in order to get that, which means that he was probably seated, looking down at the camera at its viewfinder.

    I noticed that it's faded because of the people in line at the bottom. Some of the more vibrant colours, such as reds and blues, are still very visible.

    I saw the same thing! Only I think back then, it had vacuum tubes and a steam engine inside so it didn't get around as quickly... and the operator had a really hard time concealing the thick black cable connecting the garbage can to his remote control.

    Look how high that rocket is above the Peoplemover! They better get that down lower to the ground. It looks much too scarry! No worries though - they could replace it with a huge pile of crap and who would care?

    (love the pics btw - wonderful)

    Thanks for posting these. I love being able to see photos from then and wish desperately that I had more photos of my first 1978 trip.
