Souvenir Friday- Metal Perpetual Calendar

A common desk accessories during the 1950s was a metal perpetual calendar. This calendar would be used to designate the date and accessory needed prior to the proliferation of computers and cell phones that have this feature built in. Made out of chromed metal, it is a difficult piece to photograph. On the main body is a graphic of Sleeping Beauty Castle and the base has Disneyland in its great font. The main body flips and the dates flip and change. As you can see, it is always Sunday July 17th at my house.

I remember flip metal calendars. They were pretty popular in the 1960s too. I had one that was a flat vintage. I loved that thing. Wish I still had it. Yes, if you had to be stuck on a day, let it be July 17, 1955.

Neat… a quality souvenir! When I'm in the park I rarely see anything that I am tempted to buy anymore.

This very calendar sits on my desk at work.! I actually use it... I had to look quite a while to find one and when I did, I pounced!
