    Me and my mom 1967 with Monstro!

    This photo was taken by my dad in 1967, on my first trip to DL. My mom died shortly after this, so, this photo is VERY cherished. I've had it in a frame most of my life.

    Re: Me and my mom 1967 with Monstro!

    What a beautiful picture and memory, Janine. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

    My first visits to Disneyland were in the 1961-1962 range ... my first memorable visit, with my 11-year old "sweetheart", a one month "older" woman, was also in 1967, not long after the opening of Pirates and New Orleans Square.

    Very cool picture! Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting, no black railing in the background.

    Thats what I though, how cool must it have been to just be able to walk right up to it! He was a much scarier looking whale back then!

    Thank you for sharing this pic. I have yet to find any of our old Disneyland pics from when I was a child, although I know there must be some.

    His teeth are more sharp back then. I did notice that by looking at more recent photos.

    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Thanks for sharing your special memory and picture.

    It's so neat how you could just walk right up to Monstro.

    I love seeing old photos from DL. I wish I had some to share from my 1978 visit.
