    A couple vintage Disneyland photos

    I finally got a scanner, so I wanted to share these. They're from my mom's visit to Disneyland back in August 1967 (sorry they're kinda big):

    ahhh the mermaids, way before my time! I heard they were taken out because of guys diving into the lagoon after them

    These are great but they really make me miss the skyway and people mover.

    Awesome..

    It took me awhile to figure out who the people in the water were.. but Tech's post reminded me that there used to be mermaids there..

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    That's cool. I was born in August of 1967!!!
    I think the Mermaids were removed because of the Diesel fuel buildup causing skin reactions.

    Excellent pictures! I miss the Skyway so much. That was one of the park staples for me - always went every trip. Thanks for posting!

    Kenny - welcome to the 40 club!! I'm a couple months ahead of you. Whaaa! 1967 was a very good year for Tomorrowland... (Love the video by the way)

    Those mermaids look like they are treading water.

    When you wrote a "couple" I didn't think you meant literally but they're still very neat.

    Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!

    The angle of the Skyway Bucket entering the Matterhorn gives it the appearance of traveling at breakneck speed. Wiiiiiiiii! (Ok, not breakneck but faster than they used to go.)
    What time is the 3 o'clock parade?

    It's sad the mermaids were taken out, that kinds sounds like it would be a fun job! Aside from the always being wet, skin irritation, and jumping guys, of course.

    Disney has ruined my love life

    Lol...I wonder if any of the guys that jumped in ever "caught" one of the mermaids?

    Re: A couple vintage Disneyland photos

    nice pics.

    i miss the skyway

    bring back the skyway immediately. if people want to jump off of them let them but have a sign in the sky bucket in english and spanish saying we are not reliable for anybody jumping because you are not technically not in Disneyland. Too bad
