Vintage Disneyland photos collected at yard-sales

The "Stuff from the Park" blog collects vintage photos of Disneyland discovered at yard-sales and flea-markets, including some amazing rare shots of the Park's construction phase (also noteworthy are some photos of county fairs and other amusements).

I will start off with this image of a ballon seller posing in front of King Arthurs carousel in Fantasyland. Image is an original slide with the date of 7-55 written on the back. Great posed shot with the wild balloons that are pre-Mickey Mouse design. I love the sunglasses and the circle skirt. This balloon seller was definitely prior to Disney actually hiring and training employees. He looks like one very scary clown!
