A view of Jordan from the Swiss Sky Ride in 1965

Recommended Posts

Disregarding the trash, this is one of the best views of the Jordan Pavilion.

One can see how dried out the grass was inn 1965 and I'm surprised to see dead trees (unless they are trees trying to bud).  Regardless, the great drought that year was was crushing.

I visited in June-July '65, and I think I remember green trees; but I definitely recall brown grass, so I woud guess this was very early in '65 with the trees still budding.

The story is that Disney removed the skyway rides not because of safety concerns, but because they didn't like giving visitors a view of the less attractive utilitarian parts of the parks, like that Dumpster.

When I think about it, I wouldn't mind having a few minutes in a time machine and do some dumpster diving at the Fair.
