Souvenir Friday- Art Corner Postcards

For the New Years I thought I would post some of my favorite Disneyland postcards. First up is a nice interior view of the Art Corner. This is a very hard to find postcard. In it you can see the postcards for sale as well as the theme to the interior of the store. Theme you ask? The theme was streets of Paris, where great art was created in the early 20th Century with art exhibits on the streets.

Having the same theme as the store are these two flasher postcards (don't worry, they are not that kind of flasher.) First up is Mickey tipping his cap as a poster on a kiosk.

This one features a flying Dumbo as a painting at an exhibition.

One of my favorite designs is Donald Duck and his nephews riding a Jungle River launch and getting into trouble with a Hippo.

The last postcard is the hardest to find Art Corner postcard. It is of Sleeping Beauty and her forest friends dreaming of a castle.

Best wishes for a great 2010.

Do you think that Sleeping Beauty card is harder to find than the "Streets of Paris" card? I did finally get a Sleeping Beauty card, but want to upgrade it someday.

Love the Art Corner cards!

Enjoying your blog very much and love the Art Corner interior card. Looks like they sold the old Walter T. Foster art books inside. I learned to draw and paint with those books as a kid and still have one or two lying around. Great memories!

Never got involved too deeply with Disneyland postcards, so really enjoy your view on their values.

Have a great New Year!

I have the flying Dumbo postcard. I recieved it in 1958 when I was 8 years old and it has always been my favorite. It is also in pretty good condition. I was pleased to see one on your page!
