Richfield's Official Disneyland Road Map - 1955

Do you need help finding Disneyland? How about using this handy “Official Disneyland Road Map”. Courtesy of your friendly Richfield dealer. This map doesn’t have a date, but must be from 1955 as it mentions the fabulous “new” Disneyland Hotel. I can never get enough of the early Disneyland artwork.

Be sure to visit Richfield at Disneyland. The Autopia cars run on the New Richfield Ethyl. Is Richfield’s “Years-Ahead Show near Autopia” the same thing a “The World Beneath Us”?

Motoring Tip! Always fill up with Richfield Ethyl! It's neat how Richfield had a service station “immediately adjacent to Disneyland”, more excellent corporate sponsorship.

There’s a lot to look at here in the close-up section. I see a Katella Gate Entrance in 1955 (link) and mention to use the Katella Gate Entrance should you head north on Harbor by mistake.

Tim - Thanks for posting this great brochure. Don't know why that gate never jumped out before. It's all in the details!

Thanks again.

The earliest paper items often had great artwork like this... maybe I'll post an example from my collection soon! It's chock full of great artwork.

Major; I vote YES for more stuff like this from your collection! Do you have the 1955 TWA brochure, I want one but they seem to be pricy still on ebay!
