On the Porch at 3028 Bellefontaine Street


Yesterday's post on Walt Disney's early life in Kansas City inspired Diane Miller Disney to share a memory of her father and his family when they lived at 3028 Bellefontaine Street. Diane wrote via the post's comment section:

"We have a bit of wonderful film, shot by my dad, of the entire Disney family on what appears to be the screened porch of that home on Bellefontaine. He pans around the room, and we see little Dorothy Disney with her parents, Flora perched on the arm of Elias' chair, laughing and talking animatedly . . . "

"When I saw this film, not too many years ago, I understood why my dad always said 'My mother was a beautiful woman.'"

Bravo on another exceptional post, Jeff, and congratulations on having a member of the Disney family not only take the time to read, but comment on it as well. It's quite an affirmation of how special and important your work here is. I can't tell you how happy I am for you.

This just goes to show you that you never know who will read your words when placed on the Internet.
