Then and Now

My sister gave me this neat gizmo for Christmas. It allows you to copy slides and negatives directly to your computer.

I have had this set of slides from a trip to Disneyworld in 1972 that I haven't seen in many, many years. They have faded a bit, but were fun to look at. One picture in particular intrigued me. I had to think about it for a while to figure out just what was in the background. Can you guess?

Here's a hint and a picture (copied from Flickr) of the same area today.

I did not know they made such a thing. wow.


I'm emailing your photo to my husband at work so he'll see it tomorrow - other wise I doubt I'd remember to mention it to him as he's already gone to bed for the night ;)

thanks for sharing - I wonder if it's hard to use....

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

It's been a really long time since I've been there, but would that be Space Mountain I see in the background? Wow, that's pretty cool to see the changes in any case!

I'll go with Jen's answer since I've never been there at all. What a difference.

Oh, cool! We went the first year that Disney World was open, so your photo brings back a ton of memories of that trip! It was pretty barren, but exciting just the same. Look at how the race cars have changed!
