Mad Hatter Hat Shop Sign 1966

Staying on the theme of Hat Shops, here is a nice image of the Mad Hatter who was placed over the Mad Hatter hat shop located in Fantasyland. The design of the character is very nice and in model to the Mad Hatter in Alice In Wonderland. And of course I keep thinking of all the fantastic hats being sold in the shop.

Isn't there a Mad Hatter shop on Main Street? I'm almost sure I had a photo from the 70's showing one near the Opera House. Of course it more makes sense that it would be in Fantasyland....

They were in both locations. I have a black and white image that did not scan well of the same shop taken in the 1950s in Fantasyland.

I worked at the Mad Hatter/Fantasyland from 1967 to 1971. There were shops in Frontierland, Main Street (next to Abe Lincoln), and Tomorrowland. I worked all of them at times but mostly worked Fantasyland. Seeing that picture of the Mad Hatter from above the store....brought back many memories.
