The very talented Jerrod Maruyama sent these fantastic views of Disneyland's Skyway. They came from a large box of slides from his grandfather. Ever wonder how many grandparents have boxes of this stuff that end up in landfills?? What a depressing thought. Well we can be glad that not ever little treasure gets tossed.
This is the original version of the Skyway (opened June 1956), however when the Matterhorn was built (1959) the Skyway path was altered slightly to travel right through the mountain.
Something that thrilled me about the second photo above was something I didn't immediately notice. THE RAIN COVER. Did they put those on all the buckets when it rained?? I don't remember that happening in the later version (1967-1994). I'd love to know more.
