Souvenir Friday- Disneyland Santa Fe Railroad Color Studies

Keeping in the theme of pre-opening items are three small color studies done for the Disneyland and Santa Fe Railroad. The studies are not very detailed nor very large. I believe they were done in late 1954 as the trains were being constructed. I purchased the sketches many years ago from a Howard Lowery auction and have enjoyed them since them. Unfortunately the only marking on them is a phone number written on the back so I do not know who painted them.

In other news, I am working a posting thread on Tiki Central showing my collection of Tahitian Terrace items. Check it out: .

I remember that Howard Lowery auction, these are super nice little train paintings!
