1963 or 1964, Wrather's at the Disneyland Hotel

The Wrather family (minus Linda) at the Disneyland Hotel some time between 1963 and 1964. The first tower building had "Hotel Disneyland" atop the building due to the placement of the glass elevator. There was more space to the right of the elevator (facing the Hotel) so the longer of the two words would only fit there. In 1966, when the Tower Building was expanded, there was sufficient room to reverse the words and properly call it the Disneyland Hotel. Chris stated to me that the Hotel was by far his father's favorite business venture. Jack Wrather absolutely loved the Disneyland Hotel.
