Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Home Movie from Disneyland in 1956

Written by Chris Alm • January 2nd, 2010

A digitally restored home movie shot at Disneyland, California in 1956. Not only was the park only a year old but Walt Disney him self can be seen in the beginning shaking hands with the author’s grand mother.

I really love how vivid, colorful and happy everything looks like. The post war optimism and friendliness really shines through the lens and into your heart. See the second part here.

Thanks Cam
