Photograph was edited for publication purposes. Photograph article dated January 26, 1962 partially reads, "Today's youth is said to be an underprivileged lot, denied many of the earthy joys of previous generations. A crushing blanket of sterile suburbia has all but smothered the life out of all the old-fashioned fun that was once the most cherished inheritance of the young - so the lament goes... But, all is not lost! There is one spot left on this highly organized earth of ours where children - and their parents - can escape into a glittering world of childhood makebelieve - DISNEYLAND. True, the 'Magic Kingdom' of The Great Cartoonist is in reality little more than a multimillion-dollar fantasy facade designed to capture the hearts of the young and the pocketbooks of their elders. But it does, nevertheless, provide a much needed escape from the often harsh realities of the world we live in for both young and old." Photograph caption reads, "Does this duck-bill model suit my personality? Greg asks Bobby during hat-buying interlude at Disneyland... Or perhaps it'll look better tilted like... this."; See images #00142892 through #00142899 for all photos in this series.
