Souvenir Friday- Wrapping Paper Original Art

This is a piece of original art. The design I believe is for wrapping paper which I thought was appropriate as you need to wrap those Christmas gifts. Based on the designs I believe the paper is from the early 1960s. Thanks to Jordan at Perky Pickle for selling this to me.

This is a closer view of the Disneyland Dickens Carolers. I think the tree they are adding the ornament onto is located close to Carnation Gardens. On the back of the publicity photo is the following press information: A bright star for a Disneyland Christmas tree---placed there by some of the stars of the Magic Kingdom's entertainment-filled holiday celebration. They're Nancy Weaver (center), Sharon Bliss and Bob Hasty, members of the popular Disneyland Carolers who will entertain visitors with yuletide songs and hymns from Dec. 19 through Jan. 3. Disneyland's holiday festivities begin officially with the gala Christmas Parade on Sunday, Dec. 20.

Wow, cool original artwork! It's funny, did the artist even look at a photo of the Monorail for reference?! ;-) In a way it looks more like the current Monorails.

The Matterhorn strongly resembles that toy bank in which your coins roll down the slopes.

And lastly, the great hunter is pointing his rifle at the dangerous and bloodthirsty baby elephant. Awesome!
