I am starting a series of postings showing the evolution of Disneyland from purchase of property to January of 1955. The description for the photo is: 7/16/54- date property was purchased. The solid white line shows the 160 acre area allocated to DISNEYLAND. The dotted lines show the 100 acres to be used for our pony ranch, 400 unit Motor Hotel, and overflow parking. The road running diagonally from the upper left hand corner is the Santa Ana Freeway and the road down the right hand side is Harbor Blvd. Note: after a request I have circled what I believe is Ron Dominguez's family home in the left hand middle side of the photograph, to the right is another circle with the Dominquez palm location.
To brighten up the site since I have been posting a lot of black and white photos is this nice shot of the Security Office on Main Street. It appears this was located across the street from the Gibson shop.
