Souvenir Friday- Carnation Lands Ice Cream Shakes Brochure

Moving to Colorado has really decreased the amount of Disneyland and Disney related items I find when I am at Swap Meets and Antique Stores. However once in a while I do find some really great items. Last Sunday I was at the Colorado Springs swap meet and a seller I know has been cleaning out his barn of accumulated items. In the box I spied the words Tomorrowland and Frontierland and knew I had found a nice Disneyland item. The brochure was given away by Carnation Ice Cream and features floats and other Ice Cream desserts inspired by Disneyland. The brochure is dated 1959 and features some great graphics. I love brochures that tie merchandise or sales with Disneyland.

Holy moly! I've never even heard of this brochure before. Plenty of 50's era Disneyland graphics, too. Congratulations on a fantastic find, Matterhorn!
