Pictures taken 80 years ago produce turbulent responses on the Web – “Disney used to be a scary place”


It seems that this is not Disney Land.  Seeing the first picture from slightly changed camera angle, we might have an impression that there is an altar for Moloch worship.  This is a picture which stirs such imagination.

English translation from an excerpt from a Japanese article: Raba Q – August 3, 2013 –

Pictures taken 80 years ago produce turbulent responses on the Web – “Disney used to be a scary place”



Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse …!?
Apparently, there is something different!
And apparently scary!
Such souvenir picture was surely poplar at that time, I suppose.
It is because the boy looks so happy.  Oh, not so happy? (I’m unsure about it.)

---------- 
I don’t even want to know why that boy is on his knees.

Why is Mickey wearing heels?

  Looks like a random note, proof of live.

  What kid wears a tie to Disney Land/World?

  “On your knees boy!”

  Someone should color this!

  The scary part is that this picture IS colorized.

  Anyone else notice Mickey seems a lot more feminine that Minnie?
  Clearly 1930s, clearly not Disneyland.
(The first Disneyland in California was opened in 1955.)

 The 1930 s Mickey Mouse Club characters.

 These other costumes of Mickey and Minnie Mouse from the 1930s are a bit creepier.



  My God.  They look like something from a horror movie.

These pictures will make children today cry.
I want to ask for feedback from children of that time.
