Another image from the long series of photos taken of Main Street Stores. This time it is the Yale Lock shop that featured a giant key outside. This style of advertising is a well known and highly collected category folk art called trade simulators. The folk art consists of giant representations of the merchandise or tools used by the proprieter. Some of the classic examples are giant teeth for dentists and giant glasses for an optician. The Yale Lock shop featured a display of locks and keys from ancient times to modern times. Additionaly a guest could get a souvenir key with the Disneyland castle on one side and Yale logo on the reverse. Yale is still at Disneyland as all the doors use Yale and Towne locksets.

These two windows represent Disney attorneys. Gunther Lessing was one of the studio's first attorneys, representing them in a case for profits for the Skeleton Dance. Younger and Leopold were both partners in the firm Youngman, Hungate and Leopold who represented Disneyland in early contract negotiations.
