    Pictures from 1974.

    Hi everyone. I know how much we all like pictures from Disneyland, especially pictures that are 30 years old or older. I scanned some of my Mother's pictures from 1974. I am not in these shots because I was not born yet. I picked the ones I thought were the best and most interesting. So enjoy. First a Main Street daytime picture.



    Now here are some of the shows.






    Now how about some the Main Street Electrical Parade.



    The Train



    Alice and snail



    It's a small world



    A dragon.

    And there you are. Hope you all like them. By the way, I would ask that if you want to use these pictures you ask me first. Do not repost without my permission please.

    Mellonballer, those are great pictures form 1974! That picture from the MSEP with Alice and the snail REALLy surprised me, though! I thought most of the units were two-dimensional and the snail looks 3-D for sure. I LOVED seeing the dragon, too! Being a lover of nostalgia, these really are classics! Thanks for sharing them with us!

    Um I just saw MSEP at DCA and it's still got most of 'em. The Pete's Dragon portion is kinda cool especially if the crowd can get Elliot to notice them when the time comes.

    Wow, the memories. I was six when your mom took those. I think that is about the first time my parents took me to DL. Very nice, thanks for sharing.

    I won't bore folks again with all the details, but Disneyland and 1974 are very important to me...thanks for the great pictures and continued memories.

    Re: Pictures from 1974.

    Thanks everyone who has posted in favor of my pics. I appreciate it. The 1974 trip did not have a lot of pictures to post, and most are kind of repetitive. Here are 2 more pics. One is of a lovely greeter CM at the Plaza Inn, the other is in response to Ex-Small World CM. There were still some 2-D floats in the parade at that point. Maybe that was a transition year or something.
