Characters on Main Street

One of the earliest characters on Main Street was Trinidad the White Wing of the Disneyland Sanitation Department. This snapshot is of Trinidad by the Gibson card shop heading onto Main Street, pushing his cart. I like the feather in his cap. He appeared on his own early Disneyland postcard.

The next image is of a very young ice cream vendor. The vendor also made it onto one of the earliest postcards. I was hoping that the vendor would be wearing one of the early ID badges, but he is not. I do think that everyone would look dashing in his belted outfit.

I remember seeing early pics of Trinidad the White Wing, but wonder how long he was at Disneyland? Does anyone know when he disappeared from the Park? Thanks, Matterhorn.
