Boys Life - July 1973

Taking another magazine look at Walt Disney World today we present “Boys Life” (not to be confused with “Nuns Life”) from July 1973. “Boys Life is a magazine published by the Boy Scouts of America. Its targeted readership is young American males between the ages of 6 and 18.”

It’s an interesting article, told from “your” perspective about a trip to the Magic Kingdom. The scans are not slanted, the article itself is slanted! I did the best I could, just tilt your head a little as you read.

I used to study these ads with much care. Even as a kid I knew there had to be a catch to these ads. I’m guessing that selling greeting cards door to door in 1973 might not be as easy as you would think.

Since we are in 1973 and at Walt Disney World, how about a book full of tickets? June 1973.

$5.75, just a few coins higher than Disneyland. Now including 8 adventures, up one from the original 7 in 1971.

Attraction List.

That's funny! Nun's Life - Great post, nice article. Did you notice the Cox Airplanes and vehicles in the add. CoxPilot might get a kick out of that.
