Here's a couple of shots of Bob Gurr's, Main Street OMNIBUS!

Made from scratch, this old-timey fantasy vehicle still runs (believe it or not) at Disneyland today. It started operation in 1956 and is still going strong!

Here's a 1958 shot...

Goin' my way, ladies?

...and a snapshot from the upper deck of all the activity of Main Street in the summer of 1959!

...and a close-up of some sweet signage for the Disneyland '59 celebration!

Ah, the good ol' days!

Yes, I do kind of wish I could see the banners in the second photo, what a wonderful and unusual perspective. Thanks for sharing!

I have heard that the original busses are at Walt Disney World and the busses running at Disneyland were built in the 1970s.

It is definitely 1959. I counted 48 stars on the flag. ;)
