Souvenir Friday- Walt Disney Educational Media Dinosaurs from Primeval World

My aunt was a school teacher and obtained this set of Dinosaur history from the Walt Disney Educational Media company. When I started collecting Disneyland items, she gave the set to me. The images are all from the Primeval World on the Disneyland Railroad. The set is dated 1972 and was meant to placed up on boards or used as educational cards with information on the reverse about the Dinosaurs. This is a set I cherish not only for the great images, but knowing my aunt used them to educate many kids with it. I did not place these in order...

Nice images. I didn't know Disney did such things.

Your collection continues to amazes me. And what a wonderful aunt who kept you in mind when retrieving these for you. Thanks, Patrick!

I would have LOVED to have had a teacher who had these in her classroom. I was such a dinosaur nut, I once talked my parents into riding the SF&DLRR 4 times around the park without stopping just so I could see Primeval World 3 more times.

Thanks for sharing!

That reminds me, does anyone know why the T-rexie and Stagger-saurus scene is obscured from guests riding the train through the Primeval World? I seem to recall it was covered back in 2011 when I visited the park, and they are covered now in 2015. Have they been covered up for four years?
