1956 Disneyland Paper for Chris

The front and back of one of the coolest postcards from 1956 advertising the construction and opening of the Mine Train Ride through Rainbow Caverns, Stagecoach Ride and Mule Pack Ride. Wonderful birds eye view of the new attraction. Reverse has the following caption: Disneyland This is a Walt Disney Artist's conception of a section of FRONTIERLAND in Disneyland, featuring the awe inspiring Mine Train Ride, the exciting Stagecoach, and Mule Pack Rides, where one can journey through the many fantastic sights fo the Rainbow Desert and Rainbow Mountain areas, returning with a veiw of the famous Mark Twain River Boat and Tom Sawyer Island. The bottom lines state: This new DISNEYRAMA card is one of the many unique items distributed exclusively by the ART CORNER at DISNEYLAND, Anaheim, California.

Too bad Disneyland did not do other Disneyrama cards as they would be pretty cool. Check back tomorrow for the gate flyer for the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction.

Great card. It's too bad that such great, distinct hand-drawn commercial illustration is delving deeper towards obsolescence. At least there is a handful of folks like you and Dan who preserve these long-lost treasures. Thanks a bunches.
