Souvenir Friday- Pillow Cases
Back in the 1950s, fancy pillow cases were all the rage. Many were sent home by service men and women from their basic training camps, ships, military bases and even from overseas. Other tourist locations would sell the pillow cases adorned with graphics and sometimes poems about mom, dad, sister or brother alongside pennants and other souvenirs. Here are two pillow cases from Disneyland, one featuring early artwork for Tomorrowland and the other for Frontierland. I have seen others for the other lands (and am looking to add them to my collection as well.) The pillow cases would then be slipped over pillows and displayed upon the sofa in the living room (the room used only when guests would come over.)
