Gary, I was thinking the same thing. Crowd much smaller 40 yrs ago.

The castle is not in this photo because the picture was taken looking towards the train station at the opposite end of main street. Love Disneyland!!

Actually, taking a second look, I think it is just the angle of the photo. I assure the castle was there in 1970!

#12 – I think it’s a combination of the angle of the photo, plus MICKEY and his ladder are blocking our view of the castle!!

Kinda surprising they didn’t take the photo so you could see the castle in the background as well. They only needed to take a couple of steps to their left, so you could see it.

I’ve been sending a link to this photo to everybody I need to remind that this Sunday is Daylight SavingS Day!!

Thanks for the reminder, Disney! I would’ve expected it to come in April, like it usually does.
