Bonus Sunday

Welcome to Bonus Sunday.

First up is a great Vacationland. This is a Walt Disney World Vacationland (don't run, it’s a good one). This is Issue #2 of Volume #1 dated Winter/Spring 1972. Lots of neat stuff in this issue. As I have done before, these full scans of the WDW Vacationlands are done in “Cinema-scope” with 2 pages scanned at a time. The WDW Vacationland seems to lend themselves to this format as shown on the two sample pages below. Enjoy.


WDW Vacationland Fall/Winter 1972 - 65mb








I sure do like this early 70's style of artwork, it brings back many fond childhood memories...






Next, from Wednesday‘s post (link), I was attempting to scan the entire issue of Modern Screen but a few things happened; (1) I had to disassemble the entire issue as it was stapled and glued together making flat scans impossible and (2) half the pages aren’t numbers so I got kind of confused. Here’s a few more fun pages, look back later in the week for the full issue (sorry Richard).







Hey, my mom used to use Prell!






This ought to wake you up if you’re still groggy and asleep! Wire hangers anyone?

... and besides the picture of Joan Collins is more than I can handle on a Sunday anyway. Woof!

Poor Joan Crawford—she really does look scary in that ad! Thanks to her though, Pepsi sponsored the original small world attraction at the Fair.

Now, that was an unexpected assortment for a Sunday. Our house used Prell too, but it was the squeeze bottle. I remember the tube especially cause the letters were in their own boxes, just like the sign in front of Disneyland... See 5 year olds DO pay attention.

Poor Joan Crawford indeed. She looks like she's about to tell us about her rodeo adventures. She's unhappy about something, anyway. Maybe she's just realized that Coke is about to shove Pepsi out of the west half of the park and her stock value is gonna drop.

Hollywood types. You never know.

Love these old magazines, ads and all. Do you have a scanner that is big enough to scan an open magazine all at once? If so... I'm jealous!

Note the mention of H. R. Haldeman and the link to the Nixon Administration!

Katella Gate said...

Ok Progressland, I will bite. Where's the reference to Haldeman and Nixon?

Progressland said...

Katella Gate: Page 7: "A significant moment of the ceremony occurred when H. R. Haldeman, Assistant to President Nixon, presented Roy Disney with an American flag that had once flown over the White House. It was the first American flag given by the President during his term of office and was proudly raised over Town Square the following day during the formal dedication of Walt Disney World."

They talk about Walt Disney World versus Disneyland on the Nixon White House tapes. Unfortunately, that conversation is a recording from the Executive Office Building, where the recording quality and acoustics were awful. One day I'll try to make a transcript of the conversation!

Oops. My bad, I forgot that there was a complete version of the issue as a PDF file, I was only scanning the visible pages.
