I thought I'd add some more cool things which we saw at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA...

Below you can barely see the top of the golden railroad spike (It looks like a white dot.) which marks the geographic center of Disneyland.  It is just past the arch of Cinderella's Castle.

Here is a photo of a portion of Richard Broderick's painting of Abraham Lincoln on display at "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" in Disneyland:

I am now officially a huge fan of Richard Broderick, the artist who painted it.  I Googled Mr. Broderick, but could not find any information of value about him.  If the above painting is merely a reproduction (painting) of a 1860's photograph, then it is great... If it is a fresh take, an original view of Lincoln, altered by Broderick's imagination, then it is a greatly astounding!  This is one of my favorite artworks, because it shows where my realistic artwork could go if I just continued improving for 436 years!

Below is a description on a plaque below the painting.
