From July 1955 it’s Swift News. Technically it’s a “newsletter” but it’s in a magazine format, close enough for me.
The Disneyland article consists of just one page. However, there are plenty of good vintage details. The display case contents sound yummy; “chickens with their feet still attached, slab bacon, eggs in baskets, and butter in tubs.” Was the “Special Room” for Swift’s Centennial cake ever built? The “Delmonico type” restaurant certainly was never built.
A century of progress in food preparation. Maybe it’s just me, but the “old” meal from great grandma in the top photo seems a lot better than the “new” (fresh from the freezer) meal in the bottom photo.
The only advertisement, enjoy.
Keeping with the Red & White Swift theme, here’s a vintage matchbook, presented to you “Amidst a Gay 90’s Atmosphere”.
Lastly, from a previous post, here’s a Swift placemat from December 1961. Interesting to note that the Matterhorn and the Viewliner are both on this map, but no Monorail.

There may not be a new post tomorrow, I’m going to “Celebrate” at the park ALL DAY today!
