Welcome to Magazine Monday. Today is Magazine Potpourri day, four short vintage Disneyland articles that have no magazine attached. I would prefer to have the entire magazine, but at least we’ve got the main part!
First up, the only two page article today and it’s from Popular Mechanics, December 1954. That's the early map that is way off, but super cool to gaze at… Hey, who is that pointing at the Mark Twain? The park will be “Open for inspection next May” – close.
“Kid’s Dream World Comes True” from Popular Science August 1955.
This article should have been posted yesterday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ’59 additions to Disneyland. From the July 1959 edition of Popular Mechanics.
“Disneyland Extends Monorail”. From the April 1961 edition of Railway Age.
From an unknown & undated magazine, this advertisement if for the Prescon Corporation and describes how the tower for the Disneyland Hotel was built. Did they let guest in the first two floors while the other nine were being built? How did that work out?
This post needs some color! Another undated advertisement, most likely from 1956 or 1957. Insurance by North America (INA), be sure and visit their Information Center at Disneyland.
This advertisement is on the back side of the INA page. Why do desserts from the 1950’s always look so yummy???
