Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Disneyland about 1967. The "vomit cups," as I recall them. Here are my indefatigable mom, still alive and kicking, my little brother and moi. These were the days of the ticket books. The letter coded rides! From what someone told me, it is now nearly $80 to be admitted to Disneyland. Kinda makes me NOT want to go. This was one of a series of my dad's crystal clear 35mm slides. Dad was a fine amateur photographer. He just had a nice touch! Of course, depending on where he sent his film to be developed, results could vary. Here's a link from a popular Disneyland site showing how the ride has changed over the years. View full size.
