Souvenir Friday- Wide World In Wax Wax Museum Anaheim California

Today's souvenir is a neat guidebook from the short lived Wide World in Wax Wax Museum in Anaheim, California. Originally featured at the New York World's Fair in 1964 and 1965, the museum was moved to Anaheim at the corner of Harbor and Katella near Disneyland. The guidebook is interesting in that it was the original brochure from NYWF and just has a new paper cover attached. According to Chris Jepson's excellent blog O.C. History Roundup O.C. History Roundup the building is now the lobby for the Radisson Hotel Maingate Anaheim. Enjoy this tour of the wax museum, I like the Superman figures and the French girls fighting.

There is an amusing misspelling of John Lennon as John "Lemmon"

Have to say, I love "Paris by Night." After all that Biblical and historical uplift, a few square feet of looney, elbow-to-elbow decadence must have been a real crowd pleaser.
