Souvenir Friday- Disneyland Cigar Box

There are a couple versions of Disneyland cigar boxes that were used and sold. This is one of the nicest graphic ones with the representation of not only Sleeping Beauty Castle, but also Main Street and the Horse Drawn Trolleys. I like the typography as well, evoking that 1890s feel. The inside cigar label is the same as the outer cigar label. The box once held 20 of the miniature cigars. The other boxes I have seen are bigger with just the castle and one that is long and skinny holding just two cigars.

Cool...all I have is some measly cigar labels (including a giant "novelty" label).

This is a very interesting shot. I knew that Disneyland had a Tobacco Shop and that was why the Indian stands on Main St. Tobacco has definitely become non-PC. As a side note, some friends and I took a Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour. The guide pointed out a picture of Walt in the Lincoln waiting area. His had was resting on a desk, but they had airbrushed out the cigarette that was in between his fingers. What they neglected to do was airbrush out the reflection of the cigarette on the shinny surface of the desk. It was very amusing...
