Some Character shop

Awhile back I posted some pics that I had gotten photocopies of from the Disney Archives. Here are some more. These are of the Character Shop circa 1967.

As a bonus, here is a shot of the counter at The Space Bar (under the Peoplemover loading station).

Totaly off subject

Here is one for you before I go on my birthday trip to Disneyland. This pic should be over at Charles Phoenix's page. Look at the happy kids in this pic. Brother and sister. Dig the boys highchair. And look at all of the state-of-the-art audio equipment there, 8 tracks, reel to reel and records. In the background, on the floor, is a electric sports car. Weee! OK, I'm making fun of me! This pic has nothing to do with Disneyland other than me being in it! Dated January 1972, I was 2 1/2 years old. My dad, like myself now, was heavily into Audio/Visual production. It's fun to look back at some of those things that make you who and what you are. It is fun to know that my Dad still has all of that equipment and it still works.
God, I'm feeling old!
And that is my stupid sister behind me :-P

Knott's Berry Farm 1959

Here are some pics of a trip my mom and dad took when they first started dating in 1959 (they were married in 1962). These are from October of 1959. Knott's sure doesn't look like this anymore (not for the best).
First up is the Stagecoach.
Here we have a lovely view of the ghost town.

I'm assuming that this is a demo of rope handling. Look at the little chuch in the background.

And finally, the steam train!
