Description
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. Pictured are the Fuson family of Chatsworth, on the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad. Parents Ron and Marty watch conductor help son Bobby, age 5. Photograph dated January 26, 1962.; See images #00142892 through #00142899 for all photos in this series.
