Cool article - thanks for the heads up Steve.

I love those first two photos. Finally I have an idea of where those black and white publicity photos were taken from. I've seen those photos in so many books throughout the years and all along I always wondered about where they were taken from on the Holmby Hills property.

That modern day aerial photo is rather sad. Not much Disney history remains on the site now except for the tunnel mentioned in the text. I wonder how much Disney railroading history was just thrown out when the new house was built.

Yes, Steve, thanks for posting this. This brings back memories of doing this little project, but unfortunately I didn't have the terrain:
