Souvenir Friday- Anaheim Brochure

Anaheim soon discovered that Disneyland was a great way to draw tourists and even potential residents. Using the Hub of Happiness and the sun for sunny California, Anaheim promoted itself and it worked. The city became a known location and the home of not only Disneyland but also industry. The yellow strip on the bottom is two sided with a large list of hotels, motels and restaurants.

This is a great find! I love old maps. Do you know approxiately when this dates to? Late 50's? It pre-dates some interesting landmarks. It's fascinating to see what things were touted as tourist attractions in previous eras. Especially when the big fold-out map doesn't include major freeways (which are interestingly included on the small b&w map.) Thanks for posting this!
