Haven't posted in a while so how about a photo. This one is from opening day in August 1956. Can you name the people in this picture?

I think the man on the far right is Jack Wrather,one of the owners/builders of the hotel. He was married to actress Bonita Granville.
The woman standing next to him could be Helen Alvarez.
I don't know who the others are.

I'm presently residing in Texas, but I was raised in Southern California and lived there for 30 years. My parents used to live right near Disneyland.
