New Pics From the Vault Find


This one is cool because it has the LA Airways helicoptor flying over. This was taken just after this Tower opened for business in 1962.
This one is of particular interest. Notice the blue Monorail train. The postcard from almost the same view has a red Monorail train.

Hope you all like these.

These are especially nice - I assume that they are publicity photos? I'm trying to pick my favorite, but they're all great.

I like the Monorail/Hotel sign picture. These were in a scraapbook in a box. They look to be professionally taken. I have many more that were from the same photo shoot. I will post some more soon.

The photo suggests that the (Blue)Disneyland Hotel tower was built in phases. Although my first visit was in 1967 (at 5 yrs old) I did not recall the hotel being "half" size. I did get to ride LA Airways from LAX. Thanks for the great nostalgia.
