Main Street, U. S. A.

Dublin Core

Title

Main Street, U. S. A.

Description

Several families are walking down a busy thoroughfare. The main figures who stand out are a family of three. A delighted mother dressed all in red walks happily with her husband who pushes their baby in a stroller with an adorable blue tarp to protect it from the sun. Several cars are cruising down the street. The sides of the streets as well as sidewalks are full of groups of people. In the back looms the majestic structure of the Cinderella Castle.
This card seems to be an unstaged photo of guests enjoying their time at Walt Disney World. There's a man and woman wearing outfits of a similar color scheme (red) and a baby in a blue stroller. Behind these guests are old style red wagon automobiles. While there are many other objects in the image like, shops, shrubbery and people. The main focus is Cinderella's Castle.
