Souvenir Friday- Child's Sweatshirt

A great sweatshirt featuring some fun graphics for Disneyland. Based upon the graphics of the attractions, I would estimate the shirt as circa early to mid 1960s. I kind of wished this was my size as I would definitely be wearing it at Disneyland!

Frontierland Ticket Office

Not the central ticket office, but another Frontierland Ticket Office. This one is located near the entrance to Rainbow Caverns and the all the other attractions that traversed the Rainbow Ridge and Rainbow Mountain. Note that the Conestoga Wagons were half price when compared to the other attractions. Photograph was taken in early 1959. Another interesting sign is that Guided Tours were also available for purchase at this booth. The guy in the red sweater vest and white shirt appears to be a cast member.

Frontierland Central Ticket Booth

If you decided that Disneyland was way too much fun and you needed more tickets for the many attractions and rides, then you could go to a central ticket booth such as this one in Frontierland to purchase a ticket book with no admission tickets. The booths were themed to the land and the prices for the books were less than at the front gate. So let's grab a Jumbo 15 and spend the rest of the day riding everything!

Ride The Fast Freight

A great document of a rare sign for the Disneyland and Santa Fe Railroad in 1959. Seeing this sign would make me want to ride the Fast Freight in the open freight cars.

Purchase Ticket Books Here 1959

Continuing with the documentation of the signs, here is an image of the main ticket booth sign at the front entrance. Check out the prices and note that a service man in uniform would only need to pay the same price as a Junior. At this time, the Guided Tour was only a year old. By the way, I will take a Jumbo 15 ticket book please.

Souvenir Friday- New Orleans Square Tea Towel

Some people call these tea towels or kitchen towels, but whatever it is called, it is a great design with a nice map of New Orleans Square. The towel was sold circa 1967. The towel features a nice cartoon map on both sides, when you put the towel on the rack, the map shows on both sides.

The map showing the U shaped street and the lovely buildings of the land.

When I was taking pictures of the towel, my cat Molly decided to visit New Orleans Square. It was like a cat Godzilla visiting Disneyland...

More Silhouette Signs

It was not only the Main Street vehicles that had the silhouette signs, but also a couple of other signs. I posted these years ago, but thought it would be great to end the series with these signs. First up is the Hotel Tram sign with no passengers. The colors on this sign is fantastic.

This sign is the Kodak Picture Spot sign with a figural cameraman in silhouette.

A couple other images of the Kodak silhouette.
