    What wonderful pictures! Is that you in the pink dress?

    I love seeing old pictures from Disneyland. Thank you for sharing.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Just a thought. I think the reason families don't have more snaphots from DL during the '50s is the fact that anyone who thought of themselves as middle class had put the Brownie Camera on the closet shelf and took the home movie camera to the park instead.

    Home Movies were all the rage until video made film obsolete. My family has some B/W shots from the first year of the park's opening but then it was 8mm or 35mm slides after that. I have loads of both.

    And...to all you critics of DCA (and it's been pointed out in numerous posts) please note the bare look of DL and lack of vegetation. It has taken decades for bushes and trees to mature and create the look that many of you have in your minds when you think of DL. The JC really looks like a jungle for only the past 30 years. Before that, it was pretty sparse.

    Great pics.
    Love the shot of the castle and flowers!
    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...

    I was just going to say - my parents' families both spent time at DL in the '60s, but all they have are B&W home movies. I insisted on digging out the projector so I could watch my mom and uncle cavorting in Fantasyland. But they're sure a lot harder to post on the internet...not to mention they're at the old family homestead.

    I love those photos of the ROA, the second one of the Mike Fink Keelboat shows the ROA downstream, and it looks compeltely different. It looks more like a frontier than all those trees. Very cool pics, thanks for sharing!
