Esther's Photo Album #27

Today Esther shows off the Emporium with several shots of the building. The first is captioned Ann Salisbury Emporium.

The next three show various angles of the Emporium. I like the view with the Crystal Arcade and the hanging Sleeping Beauty Castle. I also like the Disneyland Livery vehicle out. I rarely find any photos with that particular wagon on Main Street.

If you have not heard yet, Don Ballard the author of the definitive history of the Disneyland Hotel has a new blog. Take a stroll over there to check out the history and items from the Hotel. The Original Disneyland Hotel

I want that castle that is hanging over the door!

What is that sign in the second photo next to the Arcade that says "Book (something)"?

Lets start bidding for the castle! What does that sign say? I think one of the words is castle?

Nice rare shot of the Livery vehicle, is that the one they still have back at Thunder Ranch?

Thanks again for this series!

I really like the one of the surrey, too. Matterhorn, would it be possible to get a close-up of the Book and Candle Shop sign? I've never seen the sign before and, as a stickler for nomenclature, I'm interested to see if there's an and, ampersand, or nothing at all there!

Matterhorn; would love to see what the exterior of the album looks like, and any notes pages, etc, if they exist. Small details are fun.
