Souvenir Friday-Jimmy Starr Letters
Here are two interesting letters that were sent to Jimmy Starr from Disneyland. Jimmy was one of the original park lessees, operating Jimmy Starr's Show Business. The store specialized in Movie Memorabilia such as photographs and postcards of stars. He also had a small display of movie wardrobes and props. Jimmy was also the Hollywood entertainment reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Express. The first letter is a letter of appreciation for the positive review of Disneyland from opening day.
