Reed Family: Disneyland Part 1

We continue with a family named Reed traveling in a 1958 Ford station wagon and Sportcraft camping trailer on their 1960 vacation destinations. (All pictures used with permission of Leon Reed)

  • "I've traveled since I was young. My parents used to take a long vacation every summer in our trailer, and by the time I was 14, I had been in all 48 (lower) states. A few years ago, my dad gave me his extensive slide collection from the 50s and 60s. My dad was (is) an outstanding photographer and, fortunately, he used Kodachrome. Almost all of the photos were taken by my dad -- though my mom, who actually worked as a professional photo finisher, was no slouch either." ~ Leon Reed.

    I love how they get their station wagon in so many of the pictures, like they're shooting a magazine ad for Ford.
