Souvenir Friday- Passport to America's Hub of Happiness

Today's souvenir was given out to attendees of a convention planners convention to promote Anaheim as a site for conventions. Designed to look like a passport, the front cover features Anaheim as America's Hub of Happiness. The inside advertises the attractions around Anaheim along with hotels and motels and their convention hall capacities. Also the souvenir from the convention was to have your picture taken with a tour guide, in this case Carla. The souvenir also touted the brand new for 1965 Anaheim Convention Center. The back page has contact information for the Anaheim Tourist and Convention Bureau.

Neat item, I dig the globe one the front with the Castle in the center! The back is funny with the phone number BEFORE the Area Code!

"America's Hub of Happiness" what a great slogan! Thanks for posting this little time capsule!
