  • Sherman, set the wayback machine to Disneyland 1974

    Here's some more shots of Disneyland in 1974, along with a 5 year old Oogie Boogie.



    This was taken in Bear Country. Behind me is the exit from the Country Bear Jamboree.



    The Bathrooms in Bear Country....




    Brer Bear in front of the Hills Bros Coffee Garden on Main Street. It doesn't look like this character has changed much.




    Is it me, or does the park look empty in these pix? These were taken in the summer btw.




    My grandmother and I on Dumbo




    A view of the Matterhorn from Fantasyland..




    The Jungle Cruise dock...




    The Mark Twain with the Disneyland Band. Its kinda wierd looking twords Frontierland and not seeing Thunder Mountain in the background.

              It may look different - but still looks really fun.

                  Great pics!!!! It is hard to look at pics of the park from before the mtn. range was more then 1. It all looks so flat and empty.

                    Reminds me of those mornings when we got up at Oh-Dark-Thirty and hustled down to Disneyland before the Rope Drop, and had breakfast at the Coffee Garden watching everyone else rushing in - although I thought it was named the "Egg House"...

                    The shot through the City Hall side entrance tunnel - and from the visible seam in the pavement (look at the bottom of the picture) they have repaired/replaced that storm drain line there more than once in the last 55 years... (Redone again in the mid 90's when they did the paver bricks, and they *still* haven't fixed the low spot that gets stagnant and stinky...)

                    And TSI with no Harper's Mill on the end.

                    What kind of film were these prints/slides on? There's notable color shift on some of them :blush: especially the SFR Treehouse and Jungle Cruise. (Photoshop Elements. And an LCD monitor.)

                        I'm not sure what my parents used. I think it was a 35mm. I know they also did slides along with the picture prints.

                              Thanks for sharring those. Awww, Oogie Boogie was cute, what Happened?:lmao: Just kidding. Oogie Boogie is cool.

                              Thos pics bring back so many memories. I used to get coffee in the mornigs there, and I think at one time they even had a waffle and/or pancake type breakfast thing as well. The inside was very dark, quiet and victorian.

                              Interestin to see the lack of crowds, and it summer to boot. Oh those were the days, but today the Park could not survive with attendance like that. But it was sure nice to see the old Disneyland again. Thank you for sharing.

                              Thank You Poisonedapples
