Disneyland Monday - Main Street Postcards

Disneyland Omnibus
Disneyland's 5/8-scale doubledecker Omnibus carries hundreds of passengers daily on a fun-filled tour.  Camera fans especially like the unique angles the Omnibus' second deck provides.

The Upjohn Company's old-fashioned drugstore in Disneyland.  Over 1000 pharmaceutical antiques, including giant mortar above entrance, are displayed in this Victorian establishment.

EPCOT Monorail Station

I've always liked the massive feel of the monorail station at EPCOT (though these pictures do not capture that).  The uphill climb to get to the loading platform, however, has always seemed a bit much.  Somewhere I should have some old pictures of the station but for the moment I can't find them.  Instead, here are a few pics from 2008 and 2009.

Station supports

Looking out towards the station exit which has always seemed like such an oddly large area.  Perhaps because at some point there was to be another station attached for another resort line?

Anyone who doesn't think the monorail is about the coolest thing ever must not be of this earth.

The Emporium

Today some pictures of the Emporium through the years beginning in the late 80's.  The oddly colored pictures are from an overexposed roll of film from the late 80's.  Some of these shots are no longer possible since the flower market at the north end of the Emporium was filled in to expand the shop.

The western edge of the emporium with the Car Barn and the little nook inbetween that now houses the Harmony Barber Shop since it lost its home in the flower market during the Emporium expansion.

From the Main Street Train Station.

Also from the Train Station.
