    February 1961 Pictures!

    A while ago my mother acquired a small photo album from a garage sale that had several old photographs of Disneyland from February 18, 1961.
    I thought it would be fun to share these old photos, and hopefully I can find the pictures I took of the same spots but in present time and share those with you too!

    Very cool -- thanks for sharing these! The scene from inside the castle, and the waterfall on Tom Sawyer's Island make me sad, though. And that scene of Sleeping Beauty -- I don't remember it like that. Must have been the first version?

    Those are awesome! I love the captions...it kind of takes you back. I could just imagine someone getting their film developed after a DL trip and then sitting down,going over them and writing in the captions.

    Great photos! Thanks for sharing them with us. I love seeing the park in a different state and being able to see things that are now long gone.

    Great pics! My first visit to the park came about in either late 1960 or early 61...so these pics are extra special!!!
