As the “Bank on Main Street” at Disneyland gets ready to close, and following up on Davelands super Vault Door post yesterday (link) let’s take a look back near the beginning of the banks history. This “Your Guide to Disneyland” is compliments of Bank of America. This brochure is almost identical to the first version produced by Bank of America in 1955 (link to prior post), even the front panel is dated 1955. However, as the inside map will reveal, this version is from 1956.
Nice rendering of the bank, even if there are a couple of windows missing (link).
You can check the prior post (link) to see the $1 version that was sold on EBay, I can’t recall how much it sold for, but it was in the hundreds. Notice the $10 money order has an incorrect “side wheeler” as the river boat at Disneyland.
This map is very different from the 1955 version (link). While the 1955 version has drawings that attempt to represent the actual structures, this 1956 version is very whimsical and cartoonish. I like them both, but the 1955 one is still my favorite, probably because its the first edition.
The back panel does have a slight change, or revision from the original (link). The red ink show an update to 600 branches and B of A is a member of the FDIC.
