About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

King of the Wild Frontier: 1963

King of the Wild Frontier: 1963

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.

On Shorpy:
Today's Top 5

And the winner is...

Whilst reviewing my new gallery here, I saw this and realized I never awarded the prize, which goes to Ray B. The Mine Train tickets are gone, unfortunately, but as a consolation prize you can take a tour of the Monsanto House of the Future. (Not my pic.)

I'll take a crack at it

How 'bout the ca. 17-year-old, directly under the "L" in the Frontierland sign, almost as if leaning against the flagpole; we see the left side of your face, as you're looking to the right (and perhaps up a bit).


You're boy with a crew cut standing right behind the guy in the pink shirt.

I want that ticket

Are you kidding. Now that we know you, there is no doubt that you must be the guy in pink shirt, looking cool to the right.
