    Magic Kingdom Slides from the 1970's

    Hi all...I've been listening to Lou for years but didn't realize they had a message board community! So I'm new!

    I'm a professor of art/design and a long time WDW fan. I was at my Mother's house a few days ago and we were cleaning out a closet and found some old slide carousels. I found a batch of WDW slides from around 1976. I scanned them in and tried to clean them up a little bit (although I like the 'instagrammed' quality of old Kodachrome slides.

    This is the first batch...it takes a while to clean them up. Hope you enjoy them.

    Welcome.

    I've been going to the parks a very long time too. Can tell by the few photo's you've posted I'm going to be following this tread. Great memories.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Yes, the those trees have really have matured over the decades, where in other places of the MK the trees in FL and Main St. they were removed. Kind of sad.

    I love the slides that Disney sold in the 70's, they are wonderful souvenirs, priceless these days.
