How about some flyer comparisons? There must be some psychological reason some people love “comparisons”. I know whenever I see a “Before & After” post on a blog I start to drool. The comparisons are usually pictures, but it works for paper things too.
Today let’s look at two great flyers from Disneyland’s early days. Although these are different sizes, they share the same format and a lot of the same text.
Neither is dated, but the first this one appears to be from 1957 or near there. I see the “House of the Future” but no "Viewliner" or "Columbia" mentions. High resolution file here: (frontside-link) (backside-link).
Again not dated, 1959? Maybe 1960? This version is smaller, but still fun. High resolution file here: (frontside-link) (backside-link).
Tomorrow; More Flyer Comparisons!
