VSW: Matahorn, 1960


My first trip to Disneyland (I was five) I wanted to go on the overhead buckets and
all the roller-coasters, including the Matahorn.  My mom would not go on any of them.
In fact, no one in my family loves any of these kinds of rides or trams.
*sigh* 
But I remember looking up, and thought it would be fun!


Sketched from an Orange County historic photo circa 1960 with an
Edison Nouveau 1.1 stub nib with Pilot Kiri-same ink.
Came back with a waterbrush and and created the final image.

I am enjoying this Disneyland walk so much — memories!
