1972: Disneyland California
During the Summer of 1972, my wife, Helena, with her parents and an older brother spent almost a month in California, visiting with two sisters and another brother of Helena's who lived there. During their travels around the state, Helena and her family had the opportunity to spend a day at Disneyland. This was Helena's first visit to a Disney theme park. Unfortunately, not many photographs or 8mm home movies from that trip have survived. Below are a few images (mostly screen captures from old 8mm film) that I was able to save.
