Rare Pictures of Walt Disney at Disneyland With His Grand Children in 1960, Columbia Dedication in 1958
During my research of the 1960 pictures of Thailand King Bhumibol Adulyadej i've found these rare pictures of Walt Disney at Disneyland with his grand children on June 12, 1960. On the picture above, Walt is inside the locomotive of the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland, and the caption read: "Mr. and Mrs. Walt Disney; Tammy Miller -- 3 years; Joanna Miller -- 4 years; Chris Miller -- 5 years (grandchildren); Ron Miller; Diane Miller."
Below, Walt and his grand children always in the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.
On the next two pictures Walt and his grandchildren stands near the famous AA Frontierland river beavers.
I'm adding also a few others rare historical pictures showing the "Columbia" dedication at Disneyland on June 14, 1958. Caption slip reads: L/R Rear Adm. Joseph Fowler, USN (ret.), ship construction supervisor; Walt Disney; Mrs. Richmond; Vice Adm. Alfred C. Richmond, Coast Guard commandant presenting a gift Bible to ship".
