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.
Vintage photos of:
Entrance to Frontierland, August 1963. Disneyland was my favorite place in the whole world even before I ever got there. Over the course of several trips starting in 1960, I took hundreds of color slides, but apparently this Kodachrome is the only photo actually showing me there. The first one who spots me gets a free E ticket for the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.
