National Geographic Aug '63

 

Sometimes collections of striking imagery cannot stay hidden in dusty old boxes. We present a new series that offers images that please the eye. Today we present some photos from a 1963 issue of National Geographic magazine. We get a snapsot of what the Disney company was in '63.

Wonderful! I remember finding that issue in my high school library. It set me on FIRE! I stole it of course and still have it. I don't think I could ever get tired of that baby elephant picture. Ever.

Haha! Classic. I'm sure your high school librarian doesn't read this blog so you're safe. Yeah, it's breathtaking. Far more jaw-dropping than if it were made today, I'd say.

Yeah, that baby elephant pic is the best thing ever.

That baby elephant pic has now replaced my long-used computer wallpaper of Piglet hugging flowers. Before Piglet I had Simba wearing a backwards hat giving high-five to Aladdin.

Love scanning every corner of photos like these—always wonder what happened just before or just after the picture was taken, and what stories they have to tell just outside of the frame. Thanks so much for posting.

Whoa, what agreat find!

The artist looks to me like the early stages of New Orleans Square. The Matterhorn climber seem to be thinking, " Geez!, why did they have to make it so tall?"

Great vintage Disneyland and Walt photos- And how happy Walt changed the world in the 50's & 60's! Amazing man!
